The thesis is arguable, limited in scope, not descriptive or factual. It presents an argument, demonstrates an awareness of audience, articulates the writer’s voice, and is clearly established.
• Organization Overall, the essay has a clear skeletal structure revealing an effective introduction/thesis paragraph, body, and conclusion that are logically integrated and internally coherent. The paragraphs progress logically and are not merely a collection. The transitions between paragraphs, sentences, and ideas are logical and smooth.
• Development and Analysis
An adequate exploration of counter-arguments moves the essay beyond summary/paraphrase and shows how the evidence supports the thesis. The thesis is maintained and fully explored throughout the essay. The essay employs appropriate rhetorical modes (e.g. definition, comparison/contrast) in a clear, engaged dialogue with the sources.
• Research (when applicable)
The essay uses reliable and appropriate sources to reinforce the thesis or to explore counter-arguments. The borrowed information is not used in a cut-and-paste fashion or used simply as padding. The information is correctly cited in accordance with current MLA guidelines.
• Sentence Level Skills/Syntax/Diction
The sentences and grammar produce an essay which is clear, fluent, graceful. The writer deploys a variety of sentence structures to enhance the total effect of the essay and uses precise language that expresses complex ideas. The prose contains no substantial errors of spelling, grammar, or format.
