Peer Review (Rubric)

Checklist Questions

Work Time

Apply the rubric to your essay and ask yourself the following questions.

  • Have I introduced the topic in an engaging way?
  • Is the organization of the essay logical; does each part build on the ideas that precede it?
  • Have I used text features, such as subtitles or headings, to signal new subtopics?
  • Do I have sufficient facts, details, quotations, and examples to support the main ideas of the essay?
  • Have I used appropriate and varied transitions between the parts and ideas (sentence or paragraph level)?
  • Is my language precise and objective, formal enough in tone for an informational essay about Shakespeare?

If you answered no to any of the checklist questions, revise your essay.
