Rhetorical Analysis Peer Review Huseby


In regards to this writing assignment, what are you most worried about?
I want to have a clear thesis and make sure my analysis makes sense.


  • First, help the writer with their stated concerns ^
  • 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 was able to follow her reasoning really well. She clearly stated everything she was talking about and it was easy to follow. -AS

  • Does the writer address the rhetorical situation sufficiently (purpose, audience, author, genre, and context)? If not, where do you think they need to add or clarify information?

She clearly stated all of the needed criteria -AS

  • Does the writer identify the:
    • catalyst
    • main claim (thesis)
    • supports
    • linkages
    • implications
  • Does the writer give evidence from the article to back up their analysis?

Yes, with each criteria she identifies where in the article she is finding this and why she is stating that. -AS

  • Finally, write a few sentences describing your reactions to the text as you were reading it.

Although it hit the points really well, it was a tad dry. There wasn't much keeping me reading and it almost felt like more of a summary with the added criteria mixed into it. However it was really well written! -AS
