Evaluating/Revising
• Is the thesis clear and well developed?

• How can we add or revise transitions between the paragraphs to make the essay fl ow easily
from one idea to the next?

• Have we included textual evidence in the form of paraphrases and quotations, with
commentary about each piece of evidence? Can we clearly identify the evidence and
commentary?

• Can we revise quotations, using phrases rather than complete sentences from the original?

• Evaluate the degree to which you have included a variety of texts and experiences as
evidence.
