Thesis: Is there a clear thesis that states the writer’s WTG and ATG evaluation of the article? (Hint: Does it use although or however?)
How could the thesis statement be clearer?
Criteria: How does the writer make clear his/her criteria for a successful essay?
Support: Does the writer support the thesis with clear evidence?
How could the writer develop WTG and ATG evidence more effectively?
Conclusion: Does the conclusion bring together the summary and the review?
