Evaluate a Paragraph

Evaluate your peers' writing by referring specifically to the following criteria:

Structure (Strong topic sentence, Strong conclusion).

Good use of evidence. Present evidence from all the assigned sources. Tell where your evidence came from.

Analysis (explain your evidence carefully. Be sure to identify all terms).

Proofreading (is it free of grammatical and spelling errors)?

Use the Sandwich Approach

1. Mention the paragraph's strong points (this is the first slice of bread on the sandwich).

2. Mention the elements that need more attention (this is the middle of the sandwich)

3. Mention something positive you got from the paragraph. Did you learn something new? Did it offer you a valuable perspective? There is something good to say about every effort. This is the top of the sandwich.
