We examined a theoretical perspective on reciprocal peer reviewing of writing. As an alternative to the traditional approach, Learning Writing by Writing, focusing on increasing writing opportunities, we proposed and tested a new hypothesis, Learning Writing by Reviewing. Reviewing is defined as a problem solving activity of practicing problem detection, diagnosis, and solution generation in peer writing. The results supported the hypothesis in that peer reviewers improve their own writing by reviewing peer writing.
