Peer Review for Essay 2

page_1-1page_2-1


For this essay you want to look closely at the following:

1. Is there strong thesis statement, one that clearly indicates that this is an analytical essay

2. Is there a good summary? Can you clearly understand what the comic book in question was about?

3. Is there a strong analysis? Is the analysis going deeper into understanding the comic book? Is it, and the summary, in balance (roughly 3 paragraphs each)?

4. Does the summary and analysis sections have quotations from the text?

5. Are any summaries properly cited?

6. Is there, following the analysis, an evaluation or judgment of the comic book based on a spelled out criteria.

7. Is there a separate works cited page and works cited entry for the comic book?

Check also for grammar and other proofing errors as well.

– Provide any constructive feedback you may wish to impart.
