© 2005 John Wiley & Sons PPT1 Midterm Essay – Sharing my comments Negative: 1.The position could be made clearer and more obvious. 2.There are too many generalizations; no references have been included and the example provided is vague and general. 3.Personal language (I, we, us) is used throughout the essay. Impersonal language is preferred in academic writing. 4.The flow of the argument is somewhat disrupted. 5.Internally the paragraphs work; however, there needs to be better transition between paragraphs. This would also help the flow of the argument. 6.Supporting material is integrated into the text fairly well but some of the material is included is irrelevant and doesn’t add to the position. 7.Generally the structure is OK but the body fails to follow that same pattern of argumentation as set out in the introduction. 8.A few syntactical and punctuation problems, such as a sentence fragment and a missing apostrophe as well as occasional poor word choice.

© 2005 John Wiley & Sons PPT5 Midterm Essay Comments Overall: Some Figures - 4 days were spent on marking, on average 1.5 hrs & 3 times per essay. Next time: 1 page limit; students take the marker’s role; recognize the best essay, the best marker (comments), and the worst works - No variation in format and presentation unless some stand out in either item got 1 or 2 more (fewer) marks for recognition - M ore than half 70s & 60s, a few 80s - 4 essays deserve acknowledgement Their essays impressed me in terms of originality or good writing (i.e., expresses a clear point, is tightly structured, grammatically and syntactically correct, substantive, and interesting
