Step #4: Evaluating an Argument Peer Review

Instructions: Please answer each question in detail. I expect at least three to four sentences per question.

  • Does the author present the issue in his or her introduction? Suggestions?
  • Does he start from general information and move to specifics? Suggestions?
  • Does that author have a stated thesis with a clear map of points? Suggestions?
  • Please provide specific feedback about the introductions format, information, and style. What is missing?
  • Does the writer introduce the article’s name, the author’s name, and the main point/argument of the article? Is it effective?
  • In the thesis, does the writer argue whether the argument is developed well/effective/convincing, rather than the argument itself? Suggestions?
  • Does the writer argue about the how effective the argument is rather than agree or disagree with the point? Please provide specific feedback about the thesis.
  • Does the writer support each of his or her claims with quotes from the article itself? Please provide specific feedback about each body paragraph.
  • Is there a clear and arguable topic sentence that points back to the controlling idea for each body paragraph? Suggestions?
  • Is there clear and strong analysis after each quote? Suggestions?
  • Does the writer explain why he or she chose this particular quote? Does the explanation connect back to the thesis? Does it all connect back to the idea of the argument being effective and convincing or not? Please provide specific feedback about the paragraph development.
  • Does the writer have a conclusion that restates the thesis and gives a final thought? Please provide specific feedback about the conclusion and its effectiveness.
  • Is the essay at least 5 pages in length excluding the cover and reference pages? How can it be lengthened to meet requirements?
  • Are the authors sentences varied and well structured? Suggestions?
  • Are there any glaring mistakes that need attention? Suggestions?

Yes, in the article, the author mentions fashion designers does a lot of work for them to be able to present the final look of the product. The author provides a fact of the amount of women purchases a purse.

Yes, the author does give general information about what the writer stated in the article to what the author would be using in the essay to support how effective the article was.

The author does state what he is going to be writing in the essay, but one thing that bothered me was that the author stated “this paper” and I believe that it is not necessary. The author can say “In this article, Thomas uses …”

Even though the writer does provide a hook, but I believe it was not strong enough. In the introduction, the format was well written and is not missing anything. One thing did bothered me was that the thesis was not strong enough because it felt like the thesis statement was in two sentences.

The writer does introduce the article’s name, the author’s name, and the main points in the introduction after giving an example of what the article is mainly about. When the writer discuss about the main point of the article, it was very effective because it allow the readers to know what is going on in the article without needing to read the article.

The writer does state what he is going to be writing in the essay, but one thing that bothered me was that the author stated “this paper” and I believe that it is not necessary. The writer can say “In this article, Thomas uses …”

The writer does argue how effective the author is in the article, but I don’t think the writer does not provide enough evidence. The writer does provide a lot when writer about tone and logos, but not a lot for the other body paragraphs.

The writer does support his claim by using quotes, but in some of the body paragraph, there was not enough evidence to support his claims. Some of the body paragraphs, there would be one quote or so, which does not have the right amount of evidence to support how effective the writer was.

In each body paragraph, the writer does have clear and arguable topic sentences. The sentences were very short and to the point, which is very nice for reader, since readers don’t often like when writers exaggerates.

There are clear analyses after each quote, but it is not strong enough. I would suggest adding more analyses to each quote to help you support your claim.

The writer does kind of explain why he chose that quote to support his claim

The writer does restate his thesis in the conclusion paragraph, but he did not give a final thought about how he thinks how effective Thomas is in the article.

The length of the essay is more than 5 pages. Even though the essay is more than 5 pages, I think that it is necessary to add a bit more to some of the paragraphs to make the information to be more a bit effective.

The author’s sentences are very well structure and it had a really good flow to the essay. There were times when I read through the essay, there were little tiny issues, but it could be fix very easily.

One thing that bothered me was that there are doubled space between the period and the first word of the sentence. I don’t know if it is a mistake, I just always see people with one space.

Step 5 Post to your partner

Find your partner’s original post and respond to the post with the commented rough draft and the answers to the peer review checklist. Attach both the marked copy of your partner’s essay and the word doc with answers to all checklist questions to your partner’s original thread.

This is due Thursday to ensure ample time for your partner to review and revise their draft before submission on Sunday.
