English 105 Week 12

In Class

1.   Peer Review Practice discussion
  • Read this essay: Think about purpose, audience, persona, and argument and how each are presented. Write your impressions on how effective you think the writer is rhetorically.
  • Consider how you might score this essay using the Writing Criteria. Write how you might score the essay and list reasons why.
  • Think about the structure and organization of the essay and how you might use a similar strategy for your final essay. Describe what that might look like using material from your logs.


1.   Peer Review: Read your peers’ Log #16 in CIDocs and leave comments.
  • Go to the log folder and click on your peer’s log. Everyone in the class has access to everyone’s documents.
  • Leave comments by using what is called the 2 stars and one wish approach. Stars are positive – leave 2 positive comments; a wish is an improvement you would like to see – leave 1 improvement comment.
2.   Log #18: Draft a 1 to 1 1/2 page, double-spaced response to the following:

What I know about rhetoric now and how I might use it in the future?
