Humanities I Author:___________________ Peer Review Sheet Reviewer:___________________ Prepare to put some significant time in on this assignment in order to help your fellow student. Post your paper to the Discussion Board on BlackBoard. You will review the paper that comes after your post (last reviews first). First, copy and paste the original paper below the questions (below). Quickly read through the draft without making any marks on the paper. If available, refer to the original text – if not, check it after class. Reread the draft again and fill out the questions below (put answers in a different color font) AND make comments on the paper. Refer to the Rubric at the end of this document – what areas do they fulfill (highlight the appropriate area)? When responding, try to be sensitive to other people's feelings without being wishy-washy. You help them improve their grade if you give them substantial feedback. You will be evaluated on your full completion of this peer review. Submit on Discussion Board to author’s original post (as an attachment). If you do not complete this in class, complete by Friday at 5:00 PM and submit. Topic: _______________________________________ QUESTIONS: 1.

Are the ideas supported with enough examples (both paraphrases and quotations)? Make a note of any paragraphs that seem to be lacking in textual support. All of the paragraphs have sufficient textual support, although there is only one direct quote from the text. Adding additional quotes could potentially enhance the analysis. 5. Does the author give context to ideas and quotations? That is, does the author explain how the quotation works within the text itself? There is one quote in the first body paragraph; however, the meaning isn’t explained right away. 6. Does the author provide a thorough analysis of the text – that is, does the writer go beyond a simple description to describe what it means, how it means, and, at least a consideration of the context?
