Rhetorical Analysis Peer Review Workshop Belina


In regards to this writing assignment, what are you most worried about?
I definitely forgot to write about this part before switching computers. This did not give a chance for the peer reviewers to answer. My concerns are that it is too long and loses the reader in the middle of the article due to length and that I used a couple quotes twice.


  • 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 can follow the line of reasoning relatively well. The information flows in a way that is easy to read. The entire piece is is very clear and easy to understand. Nicole
~It all flowed nicely and I did not get lost. Beth

  • 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?

Yes, many details and support is given throughout the text. Each one is described nicely and again, easy to follow and understand. Nicole
~You talk for awhile about the audience, purpose, and the context but not as much about the author or the genre. Beth

  • Does the writer identify the:
    • catalyst
    • main claim (thesis)
    • supports
    • linkages
    • implications

Each one of them is stated and well addressed. Nicole
~Catalyst:yes, Main Claim:yes, Supports:yes, but always questioning them it seems like, Linkages:not too much, Implications:yes Beth

  • Does the writer give evidence from the article to back up their analysis?

Yes, the writer uses adequate information from the article. Direct quotes from the text make it easy to follow and get a great idea of the rhetoric of the original article. Nicole
~Yes, you use quotes throughout the writing and they make sense where you use them. You use one quote twice, the "I'm not the only one" one. If you can, maybe try to only use it once. Beth

~Overall, you did a good job and definitely know what you're talking about. I would suggest making sure you cover each rhetorical topic, and making sure all of your sentences flow nicely together and make sense. Also, break up the one big paragraph into a couple smaller ones if possible. Beth
