Evaluation Criteria for Your Essay:

I will use the following criteria to evaluate your position paper:

  1. Have you engaged the readers’ interest at the beginning and throughout the paper?
  2. Have you chosen an arguable position and defined it carefully (e.g. placing the issue in its historical or cultural context, citing specific instances to make the issue seem less abstract, or establishing or redefining the terms of the debate)?
  3. Have you organized your paper into an introduction, body (containing several paragraphs), and conclusion?
  4. Have you included at the end of the introduction a thesis statement that asserts a clear, unequivocal position on the issue you have chosen and, possibly, forecasts the stages of the argument, identifying the main reason or reasons that you will develop and support in the essay?
  5. Have you given reasons why readers should take your position seriously?
  6. Have you organized your reasons into a logical order (e.g. placing the strongest reason last and the second-strongest reason first, with the other reasons in the middle)?
  7. Have you supported each reason with examples, facts, analogies, statistics, anecdotes, or quotes from
  8. authorities? Remember: you need 3 quotes from the readings.
  9. Have you anticipated readers’ questions and their positions on an issue, counterarguing as needed?
  10. Have you signaled explicitly the move from one topic to the next using forecasting statements, transitions, topic sentences, rhetorical questions, and/or summaries?
  11. Have you cited at least 5 quotes in your essay, using MLA in-text (parenthetical) citation strategies correctly?
  12. Have you integrated the sources into your essay, using signal phrases to introduce long quotations or incorporating shorter quotations into the sentences smoothly?
  13. Have you included an MLA Works Cited at the end of your essay?
  14. Are the sentences clear and correct?
