Arguing Cause Peer Review Alex T

I'm not sure about the flow of my arguments, what can I do to fix this?
Claire: I think it pretty nicely actually.
Paris: I also think your argument flowed pretty good.

  • Does the argument answer the basic question: Why did this happen? What questions are you left with after reading the argument?

Claire: Yes and no questions after reading it.
Paris: Yes the argument answers why this happened. One question I have is what is anime and manga? I think other readers might understand those terms but I'm unfamiliar with them.

  • Does the writer establish that the problem exists and that we should care about it?

Claire: Yes very much so
Paris: Yes the writer established the problem and why we should care about it.

  • Does the writer genuinely address opposition? What additional opposing viewpoints could the writer address? Can you imagine other objections to the argument?

Claire: Yes. No.
Paris: Yes, Alex addresses the opposing side very well. No, Alex covered all objections I can think of.

  • What is the argument's greatest weakness? What would you recommend they revise before the next draft is due?

Claire: You don't seem to have a lot of 'hard' evidence more so just opinions so maybe try to add a little more to it.
Paris: Maybe add an example or two so the readers can relate more personally to what the problem is.

  • What is the argument's greatest strength?

Claire: Very straight forward and easy to understand
Paris: The argument's greatest strength is that there is a lot of good research to back up the issue.
