Peer Review

877 words - 4 pages

Peer review is one of important elements for academic sources. According to Lunsford (2013), peer review helps the writer see what he or she wrote from other viewpoints and what strong and weak point the paper has. In order to do that, this paper will review the partner’s paragraph which the partner composed in paragraph assignment. The rhetorical situation of the paragraph is she will have a presentation for a small class of HSC History Extension students at her former high school. The purpose of the paragraph is to help the audience to understand what postmodernism is because postmodernism is a complex and indefinable ideology and hard to be understood for most people.

75), ‘An effective paragraph often focuses on one main idea’. Lunsford (2013) also showed the first sentence of the paragraph is important to help readers know what the main idea is. Thus sentence (1) could be shorter as the audience might not catch the main point due to length of the sentence. For example, by dividing it into sentences, one of sentences could be about what you are going to explain, on the other hand, the other one could be mainly quotation to support how complicated the postmodernism theory is. And Lunsford (2013) stated last sentence summarizes what the paragraph discussed as a conclusion. Nevertheless, last sentence doesn’t conclude what is discussed in the paragraph since it describes one of criticisms of postmodernism. Alternatively, it is better to show some criticisms before summarizing to help the audience understand the gist of the paragraph.
As for use of rhetorical appeals, the writer used ethos to support her claim. Weida and Stolley (2013) pointed out one of ways to use ethos is to be in the same circumstance as the audience. Moreover, this can be accomplished mostly in recognizing values and beliefs from both viewpoints of the author’s claim (Weida and Stolley 2013). That’s why she engaged with students as a fellow peer to use ethos. However, it may better to examine some criticisms of postmodernism before reaching conclusion in order to show the paragraph considering both perspectives of her argument.
In terms of flow and transition, although the writer uses some transitions in sentence (5) and (11), it may be better to use more transitions in the paragraph. Lunsford (2013, p. 86) showed ‘Transitions help...
