Project One Peer Review Form


Aside from making comments and corrections on the essay, you should answer the following questions in thoughtful, helpful ways. 


1.  Does the writer clearly set up his/her paper in the introduction?  In other words, does the introduction contain the following elements?


A.  Exigence                               B.  Author and Text                     C.  Rhetorical Situation

D.  Audience                               E.  Thesis of Text                        F.  Thesis of Essay


2.  Does the paper have an appropriate thesis? Does the thesis identify the argument of the work being analyzed and mention the techniques used to make that argument? Is your classmate's argument about the work's rhetoric clear?


3.  Does the body of the paper follow the roadmap of the thesis statement?


4.  Does the writer provide a summary of the work?  Is it written in his/her own words?  Is it clear that the writer understands the work?


5.  Does the writer use specific examples from the work (quotes and paraphrases)?  Is it clear why the writer uses these examples?


6.  Does the paper transition smoothly between ideas? Does it do so from sentence to sentence? From paragraph to paragraph? Can you easily follow the writer's thought process?


7.  Evaluate the conclusion.  Identify the strategy the writer uses.  Does it answer “so what”?  Does it echo the introduction in an interesting way?  Does it look to the future?  Pose a question?  Does it synthesize?  Redirect your reader to the real world?  Create new meaning?  OR is it dull and repetitive?  Make suggestions.


8.  Right now, what is the strongest part of the paper and why? How could the writer build on this strength even more?


9.  Right now, what is the weakest part of the paper and why? How could the writer correct this weakness?


10.  On the sentence-level, did you find the paper to be well written?  Does it contain poor grammar or sentence-fragments?  Is it unnecessarily wordy at times?


11.  Is the paper on topic as a rhetorical analysis?  That is, does it discuss the argument and rhetoric of the work under consideration rather than just reviewing or summarizing it? Remember, these papers should not just evaluate the work's worth or its strengths and weaknesses in general terms, nor should they be focused on agreeing/disagreeing with the work's claims.


12.  What grade would you give this paper if it was a final draft?
