Reader Response for Essay 2
English 102

Follow this form when you are responding to other students' essays, scheduled for February 15, 1996.

First, be sure you write your own E-mail address on your essay, and when you receive other essays to read, write your E-mail account down there as a reader or reviewer (label it "Reader 1: egjbp," etc.).

Read the essay carefully and critically, and then write E-mail to the writer of the essay on the following topics.

Summary

Briefly summarize what you think the essay is about: what is the main idea, what is the thesis, what is the author trying to get across, etc.

Positive Elements

Write about any elements in the essay which you think work well. Be as specific as you can--don't just say "the first four paragraphs are particularly good." Say why the things work for you as a reader.

Constructive Criticism

Point out the things in the essay that don't work, and explain why. This is the most important part of your reader response. Don't take it lightly.

Using Sources

Has the author successfully used any sources? Is the original clearly attributed?
