  1. (Argument) Summarize the main idea of the draft briefly in your own words.
  2. (Argument, Organization) Does the opening establish a clear starting point for the paper (a thesis, or at least a focused topic)? Would some other part of the draft make a better introduction?
  3. (Argument) Does the paper conclude with a whimper or a shout? Is the conclusion merely repetitive, or does it synthesize ideas, suggest new directions of thought, re-evaluate the introductory statements?
  4. (Argument) Has any significant aspect of the question been neglected?
