Your assignment is not asking for you to find articles about peer reviews, but rather articles which have been peer reviewed. It seems like a subtle difference doesn't it? Peer reviewed articles are also sometimes called scholarly or academic. 

It's pretty easy to find scholarly or peer reviewed articles in the library databases. For example, if you search Academic Search Premier database, there's a checkbox when you search to narrow your results to peer reviewed/scholarly sources. Check that box and the database will revise your search results showing only articles that have been peer reviewed.
