No longer would writers be allowed to sit quietly, check text messages, or briefly look over their paper while peers read the draft and wrote responses on peer review sheets. Now, the writer is the one who asks peers the questions on the sheet. She is the one responsible for maintaining the discussion, encouraging peers to elaborate on comments and suggestions.
