Identify vivid details (involving characterization and setting) which contribute to the sensory experience of the reader. Conversely, identify areas where detail could be expanded. Is the narrative easy to follow? Is it in chronological order? Does the writer clearly discuss an experience or two (in scene) or fail to do so?

 

Assignment Answer

The note at the end should include “big picture” feedback. In Word, click “Review,” and then click “New comment” after highlighting the words or sentences in which you’d like to comment. At the end of the paper, writing “comments:” and then writing your overall feedback. To reiterate, the information you include at the end of the paper is not necessarily rehashing the marginal comments, but it might include larger questions and thoughts about the draft.

Write in the margins and a small note at the end of the paper. Here are some questions to consider prior to and during your reading:

1. Identify vivid details (involving characterization and setting) which contribute to the sensory experience of the reader. Conversely, identify areas where detail could be expanded.

2. Is the narrative easy to follow? Is it in chronological order?

3. Does the writer clearly discuss an experience or two (in scene) or fail to do so?

4. Can you identify the thesis statement? Can any larger themes or connections be drawn?

5. What questions about the narrative’s significance remain after reading?

6. Comment, only if necessary, on repeated grammatical mistakes.
