Peer Review: Letter to Author

Your peer review should be in the form of comments on the draft, and a 1.5 - 2 page letter to the author. Please be sure to do the following in your review:

1) Answer the author's questions about the essay
2) Cover the essay's strengths and weaknesses:

-- Content such as thesis, arguments that extend from the thesis, evidence, research, analysis of evidence and research, and organization

-- Mechanics such introduction, conclusion, connecting each paragraph back to main argument, transitions between paragraphs, style, and grammar

In other words, cover in prose form the points addressed in the peer review form you used for the last essay.

Be sure to circle the author's thesis and make comments directly on the essay draft.
