In the previous video, you used the comment function in Google Docs to leave feedback for your partner, and you used a checklist to make sure your feedback was specific, actionable, encouraging, focused, and respectful.
You also should have received an email notification that your partner finished reviewing your invitation and their feedback is ready for you to look at.
In this video, you will return to your invitation to review your partner’s comments.
Then, you will revise your invitation based on the feedback.
Seeing your partner’s comments will motivate you to think carefully about how your invitation reads and looks.
Incorporating feedback will help you create an invitation that communicates clearly to its audience.
The purpose of your partner’s feedback is to encourage you to improve your invitation.
Keep in mind, though, that this is your work.
You are more familiar with its contents and purpose.
You might decide to take some of your partner’s suggestions, while you might reject others.
And you might agree that something needs to be changed, but choose to revise it differently from what your partner suggested.
To start, open a new tab in your browser.
Navigate to Google Drive, and find your invitation.
When you open it, you will see the comments from your partner.

Then, move on to the next piece of feedback.
Continue revising your invitation to reflect the suggestions from your partner.

If you have a question about one of your partner’s comments or need more information, respond to the comment.
Your response will show up in your partner’s email, so they can answer your question or provide the details you need.
Once you clarify your partner’s feedback, make the necessary changes to your invitation, and resolve the comment.
