Arguing Cause Peer Review Autumn Flicek

My Questions
Are my cited sources correct?
Kayla: Sources look good!
Carly: Perfect!

Do you think I'm going in the right direction/on track with my argument? Or what would be some arguments you guys have that I could counter argue?
Kayla: I think the argument is good but I think you need more facts to back up the argument. This will make it much stronger.
Carly: I agree with Kayla. The more facts you have the more credible you are. You just need more detail!

Does the argument answer the basic question: Why did this happen? What questions are you left with after reading the argument?
Kayla: Mostly, maybe add some detail to make it more clear on to what is causing this issue.
Carly: Yes, to a point though. After reading I just felt that there was still a lot of the argument i didn't know.

◦Does the writer establish that the problem exists and that we should care about it? What is missing?
Kayla: Yes argument is established, but extend on "why we should care about this," try and answer how does this affect us?
Carly: Yes, it is stated, but like I said before there just needs to be a little more clarification!

◦What seem to be the main points of the argument?
Kayla: That these dietary supplements are doing the opposite of what they are supposed to do and actually causing health risks.
Carly: These are bringing risks to our society because they’re causing health problems and people actually get sick from them or have health issues when they are supposed to be doing the opposite. (As written by Autumn herself)

◦Does the writer genuinely address opposition? What additional opposing viewpoints could the writer address? Can you imagine other objections to the argument?
Kayla: A couple times, but not much elaboration, add more detail to this. Really prove why these are so bad, and why/how is physical food better for us.
Carly: // A little, more could be added though. If you prove their points wrong, you will instantly become more credible!//

◦What were your reactions to the text as you were reading it?
Kayla: Headed in good direction just need more info, used "So," a lot, maybe reword some of these.
Carly: I was excited to read it because I take a few supplements myself and I wanted to know what you had to say about them. It's a very good topic! I just need a lithe more information!

◦What is the argument's greatest weakness?
Kayla: Lack of facts to prove statements
Carly: I also think, lack of facts

◦What is the argument's greatest strength?
Kayla: I think it was easy to read and was relateable to many people!
Carly: When I saw what you were writing about it caught my attention right away! That's a great advantage! You really did do a good job, just needs a little more to it!
