Peer Response, Propaganda TO BE ANSWERED ON A SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER BE SURE TO WRITE YOUR NAME ON THE SHEET OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE WORK Steps for this Workshop: 1.) Give a copy of your draft your partner. 2.) Read through your partner’s draft to get a sense of what your partner has written. For now, do not get distracted by grammar and mechanics issues. I want you to focus on content and development first and foremost and then organization. We will dedicate another workshop day to grammar, mechanics, and proofreading. 3.) Answer the questions under Part 1 as fully as you possibly can on a separate sheet of paper. 4.) Read over your partner’s responses to your essay and, on a separate sheet of paper, write at least one paragraph describing what your plan for revision is. Be as specific as you can. NOTE: Be Honest! It does not serve anyone’s purpose to simply gloss over your answers. Remember, this is part of your in-class grade. If you do not take this assignment seriously, you will not get credit. I will read these answers when they are handed in by the author. If you have obviously ignored a problem with the essay or not offered any meaningful feedback, you will not get credit. Simply being here is not good enough. Part 1: What do you hear the writer saying or see the writer doing? 1. Was the introduction effective? Did it make the subject clear or draw you in as a reader? If so, how? (Provide a quote or explanation.) 2. If not, what suggestion do you have to improve the introduction? 3. What are the terms the author uses to analyze the propaganda? Are the definitions provided? 4. Which examples did you find most convincing? Why? 5. What did you find least convincing? Why? 6. What other kinds of evidence or explanation would you like the author to include? In other words, what questions do you still have? What would you still like to know or hear more about? 7. Was the paper well organized? Why or why not? 8. Did the paper use smooth transitions? Provide an example. Part 2: Read over your partners’ responses to your essay and, on a separate sheet of paper, write at least one paragraph describing what your plan for revision is. Be as specific as you can.
