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?
I think their intro is pretty decent. It starts off qith a questions then goes on to answer them. Starting off with a catching question is a good start in my book.
Does he start from general information and move to specifics? Suggestions?
I believe so. They starts off with a broad " you shouldn 't eat meat" kinda topic but shows why a vegetable life style might be a profitable one. However, I would like to see some outside sources of the author. I would like to know a little more about Laurel Gladden and what their

It feels a bit scattered and doesn 't feel like it is in order. Your paragraph about his information is fine but I think it needs to be orangized.
Does the writer introduce the article’s name, the author’s name, and the main point/argument of the article? Is it effective?
Yes, this part was very clear. It 'll be nice is his essay was illtiaze; but, it 's fine so far. Just try and add more details on the suthor themselves,
In the thesis, does the writer argue whether the argument is developed well/effective/convincing, rather than the argument itself? Suggestions?
I feel like there is not a clear thesis. There is clear topic sentence but the thesis needs some work. It needs more a firm stances on why they support the author. It feels mor elike a run-on sentence than a thesis. 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.
It is effective, they do explain their reason on why they support the author. In a strange way they should shorten a bit. Try and cut down your thesis to clearer points or add some

Suggestions?
Yes, I do like how simple and straight-forward the topic sentences. I do believe they needs two quotes to futher support their topic sentences. Other than that, good jon.
Is there clear and strong analysis after each quote? Suggestions?
Basically, but I do think they really need more quotes. All of paragraphs are really well concrete with the topic setences, though they needs to add some concluding sentences. Also, please add more quotes.
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.
This goes with concluding sentences and needs more explaintion per quote. Some paragraphs only came with one sentences after the quote. Needs some major inflation.
Does the writer have a conclusion that restates the thesis and gives a final thought? Please provide specific feedback about the conclusion and its

    Graff and Birkenstein also said that "stating your own position as quickly as possible is also a key tool". This will help the reader or audience understand what you're arguing about or for. They also say that using a type of writing template will help with your introduction. It can also take away the creativity from the writer, but it's good if you're not a really good writer it will help the audience or reader get a better understanding of what you are trying to say. They also say using sentences that return back to the topic is a good thing to do while writing.…

    During the process of finding the premises in an argument, a reader should identify the various reasons the writer has provided to back up his or her claim (Metzger 85). Premises are often introduced with words such as because, since and given that among others. A good argument should have premises as they help in supporting the writer’s claim by identifying the reasons the writer thinks his or her argument is valid. The process of analyzing arguments does not only require the identification of premises and conclusions but also identifying the premises and conclusions that the writer…

    Having someone read aloud the essay helped, as being able to hear the errors as they read. Looking at the structure as well, by following the “Longman Writer’s” book, in the structure of a compare and contrast essay. Viewing the peer review checklist, it gave me an idea of where to start, and where essay needed to be headed towards. Trying to hit the points of the questions that were being asking, such as if the thesis was strong enough, making the writer double check their work. The peer review is important the essay, they were able to catch mistakes that I wouldn’t have if I was scanning for errors.…

    This sentence structure focuses on the reader 's consideration on the content and regular progression of step or activity. The second sentence is Loose sentence: which begins with the main point and this is frequently a clarification of justification. This sentence structure is useful for clarification and portrayal. Along these lines, I believe that structuring my main idea correctly will help me enhance a better body paragraph.

    The author also presents a possible argument to his point of view that will be addressed later in the article: “Isn’t grammar really a thing of the past, and isn’t the new idea to communicate in any way as long as you can make yourself understood” (Simon 334)? This is an idea that some members of his intended audience might agree with, which encourages them to read on to find out what makes that idea so wrong. The goal of Simon’s use of the rhetorical question is to really open the mind of the reader in order to more effectively promote his ideas later in the article. This way, the reader is slightly groomed before being exposed to evidence that supports John Simon’s…

    Although I feel that Mason’s essay may have benefited from this information being incorporated into her thesis, perhaps in the introduction of her essay, because had I not known the topic I would have been confused as to what Mason was trying to persuade her audience to believe. While I do feel that the information included by Mason was valid and informative I would have liked to see more of her thoughts and feelings on the topic incorporated throughout the essay. Kate Duffin writing for the Writing Center at Harvard University explains in Overview of the Academic Essay that “[an] essay has to have a purpose or motive; the mere existence of an assignment or deadline is not sufficient. When you write an essay or research paper, you are never simply transferring information from one place to another, or showing that you have mastered a certain amount of material” (Duffin, 1998). I personally felt more like I was reading an informative essay rather than a persuasive essay.…

    So I learn that when you choose words to express your ideas, you have to think not only about what makes sense and sounds best to you, but what will make sense and sound best to your readers. Thinking about your audience and their expectations will help you make decisions about words choices. There are some general principle that I follow such as saying what you have to say, stop it when you’ve said it , avoid repeating yourself , be direct, and close what you have describe. “When a sentence sound nice, read well, and is easy to follow, its length is just right. But when a sentence is lousy, you can take steps to make it more presentable.” (pgs.…
