Arguing Cause Peer Review Belinda Corniea

Reviewed By: Brittany Watschke

Does the argument answer the basic question: Why did this happen? What questions are you left with after reading the argument? I am not sure if you are for or against drinking caffeine? In your body paragraphs you talk about the negative things but never state if we should stop drinking it or continue use.
Does the writer establish that the problem exists and that we should care about it? What is missing? State in the first paragraph all the problems you will be talking about in the body of your paper. You establish the problem through out.
What seem to be the main points of the argument? Caffeine has negative affects on the body and can become addictive.
Does the writer genuinely address opposition? What additional opposing viewpoints could the writer address? Can you imagine other objections to the argument? You don't have any counter arguments. Maybe look into that and add some. You could look at others peoples views of wanting to keep drinking it.
What were your reactions to the text as you were reading it? It was good, and had strong arguments and detail.
What is the argument's greatest weakness? needs a conclusion and an introduction paragraph
What is the argument's greatest strength? The details and facts that you have found

I believe that your paper is taking the stand point against the consumption of caffeine. I am unaware what your main argument is that you are saying is the most important issue that we should focus on that is causing the problem with caffeine? I agree with Brit if you do a quick summary of your points in the intro paragraph that will give readers a little head up about what they are about to read. You paper is missing counter argument that will not agree with your ideas, such as possible benefits of caffeine. Over all this is a good paper and had convincing arguments that support your idea. Make sure you cite anything that was not your idea! You biggest strength of this paper is the connection you are making to your audience! I really liked how most of the information included is something that college students can understand and relate to.

I'm not sure what else I should write about
Maybe add a story from someone who is addicted to caffeine and show that people actually have a problem and the industry needs to cut it or people need to limit themselves.

I think when you start adding counter argument the paper will grow and you will find more to include in your paper. - Jessica
