Step 1 - Reading Read your partner’s entire essay so you know what it’s about as a whole before commenting on the details. While doing this, draw squiggly lines below any sentences that sound goofy/awkward. Do the same thing for any sentences that are hard to understand. Write “AWK” next the squiggly lines.
Step 2A – Intro Paragraph Re-read the introduction paragraph. Provide comments directly on the essay based on the following? Common Ground: Is the first sentence a general statement about the tragic flaw that the paper focuses on? Is it interesting? It must avoid talking about anything to do with the book. What suggestions do you have? Background Info: Is the next sentence(s) provide more detailed info on the tragic flaw discussed in the common ground. Does it still avoid talking about any details from the book? What suggestions can you give? Text Connection: Does the next sentence provide a connection of ideas from the previous sentences to how these ideas relate to the play? Does it do so by introducing the writer (Sophocles) and the title ( Antigone OR Oedipus the King)?
Step 2B – Intro Paragraph Continued from previous slide… Thesis: Does the thesis directly answer the following prompt focusing on a tragic flaw? Why is Oedipus, Antigone, OR Creon a tragic hero? Does it focus on ONE tragic flaw? Roadmap: Does the roadmap give you a clear preview of the three main idea sentences of the 3 MIELIELcon paragraphs? Is the roadmap one sentence? Is the info presented in the roadmap in the same order as the 3 MIELIELcon paragraphs? Explain the strengths and weaknesses. Explain what is unclear and needs to be fixed. Provide alternatives in writing this.
Step 3A – Conc. Paragraph Re-read the conclusion paragraph. Provide comments directly on the essay based on the following? Thesis: Is the first sentence a re-worded version of the thesis statement while maintaining the same exact focus? Give a detailed explanation of how it could be improved. Provide alternative ways in writing the thesis.
Step 3A – Conc. Paragraph Continued from previous slide… Summary of Body Paragraphs: The next three sentences need to give a summary of the three MIELIELcon paragraphs (one sentence per paragraph). Are these sentences in the same order as the MIELIELcon paragraphs? Do these sentences both provide an aspect of the tragic flaw and the action described in these paragraphs? Give specific and helpful feedback in what is good and what needs improvement. Closing statement: How effectively does the last statement connect the character of focus back to the ideas presented in the first sentence of the entire paper? Provide specific feedback in what worked and what didn’t work.
