Are there any areas or examples that are particularly good and make the paper stronger?
Your rough draft of The Rogerian Essay must be submitted before midnight by Thursday 2/10/21 through this post.
It must be at least 3 full pages OR more of your draft, double-spaced, 12 size font, Times New Roman. Please review The Rogerian Essay prompt posted in Week 2 for directions.
Once all students have submitted their rough drafts, Canvas will at midnight place you in a Workshop/Peer Review group of 3-4 participants where you will provide each other feedback for the revision process.
You can leave feedback in the “Comments” section. Your feedback should be a minimum of two paragraphs per each essay. You can use these peer review questions to guide you:
1.) In your own words, what is the author’s argument? Is it stated clearly as an argumentative and debatable thesis and not as an informative thesis statement?
2.) Does the essay use the Rogerian model by trying to understand and sympathize with values that might be shared with the opponent/audience? Is the opponent treated with respect? If the author does not do this, they have failed to write a Rogerian argumentative essay.
3.) Does the author do a thorough job of addressing counterarguments and refuting them with respect? Keep in mind that an argumentative essay must address and refute counterarguments.
4.) Does the author make use of rhetorical concepts we have learned through class activities, discussions, and PowerPoint presentations?
5.) Are there any areas or examples that are particularly good and make the paper stronger?
6.) How can the essay improve?
