Rhetorical Analysis Peer Review Claire


In regards to this writing assignment, what are you most worried about?

  • I do not like this article, so my motivation to do well is not there. I simply want to answer the questions as best as I can but, because of that I feel like my writing is very choppy. Also I didn't spend a lot of time on the linkages and support.


  • First, help the writer with their stated concerns ^

I would agree that there was little motivation to read this article and responding to the article even for myself is choppy. The best thing would be to have a clear understanding on what is wanted from the linkages and supports in order to respond to the article in the best way possible. - LM
You did a good job at answering the questions, but i would also have to agree with you and say it was quite choppy. maybe just smooth it out a little. -LB

  • How well can you follow the writer's line of reasoning? Are there any places where you got a little lost, or things seemed less clear?

I think that it was fairly easy to follow the writer's line of reasoning. Claire makes it very simple to follow along and get an understanding to what the article is about. - LM
I felt like it was easy to follow their writing,but i think because it was choppy it made it easier to follow. maybe it should be changed so it flows smoother and you can still follow it.-LB
