Project Proposal Peer Review
Develop your answers to these questions. Be helpful. Use quotations whenever possible.
- What are the problem and tentative solution for the final proposal essay?
- Who is the specific audience? Does the proposal show why the problem and solution are important and relevant to them? Can they enact the proposed solution?
- Quote the research question.
- Quote the tentative, working thesis.
- What is interesting about the introduction? Does the proposal feel finished?
- Describe the research plan. Quote an example of the kinds of sources and search terms that will be included.
- How well has the student described the implications of his or her research? What impact might it have on which audience?
- How complete is the proposed schedule? What is missing from it?
- Is the works consulted list in the MLA style? How do you know?
- Which spelling and grammar issues are most distracting? Does the assignment meet the length requirement?
Remember, you’re helping each other propose research, define a topic, and make a plan for the final proposal due at the end of the semester.
