In reading, “They say/I say”, by, Graff, G., & Birkenstein, C. (2010), pg. 55-67, it talks about three different ways to respond. The complexity, subtlety, and originality of your response are more likely to stand out and be noticed if readers have a sense of where you stand relative to any ideas you’ve sited (pg. 57). The templates that are provided will make it easier to start the discussions when needing to respond to another writer's work. I think writers that work together, to edit’s each other’s work, would help each other gain knowledge and enhance their writing skills. When editing a person’s essay they are editing the work, and it is nothing personal towards the writer.
