Peer review~ Olivia Knutson

  • Established the cause nicely. Not left with any questions after reading it.
  • Establishes that the problem exists very nicely and that we should care about it.
  • Main points of the argument seem to be that there are adverse affects of energy drinks.
  • I didn't see much addressing of the counter arguments but I'm sure you will get to that.
  • Reactions after reading the text is it was very well written as it really captures the readers attention when it addresses the deaths and disabilities caused by energy drinks.
  • Weaknesses probably the counter arguments.
  • Strengths that it captures the readers attention when it lists the hazards of consuming energy drinks.

Ali, Good start to your paper. It captures the readers attention right away which I think is very important. I saw a few contractions that you could take out. Other than that it was good. And then the counter arguments not sure what you are going to do there but like I told Rachel some people think caffeine increases performance in sports by increases mental sharpness and reflexes. So maybe you could address that counter argument but it's just a suggestion. Good start to the paper.
