This is a Word file (so you can edit/adjust as needed) containing a "reverse engineering" template for peer (or self) review of a 5-paragraph (you can change the number as needed) persuasive/thesis essay. It begins by hooking the student with the idea that they are deconstructing an essay after it's written to see how it works... much like science-fiction and spy tales talk about groups capturing technology of others and taking it apart to see how it works!
It is compatible with a variety of terminology, ranging from "thesis", to "argument" to "persuasive" to "claim, evidence, reasoning", etc. styles of writing and teaching essay structure.
It is a great way for students and their peers to help one another make sure all info. in their essay drafts works to support their theses. Other such tools help with grammar, spelling, proofreading, and generic revising. This tool helps students unpack their essays and make sure the essays accomplish what they thought they did.
I'm always looking for ways to improve, so your feedback is always welcome! Thanks for checking out my store!
