As you   prepare to write your second discussion for this week, take a few moments to   do the following:


Before   drafting your initial post, take time to reflect on your rough draft. Is the   claim in your thesis statement fully developed and supported throughout your   essay? Do your topic sentences support your thesis statement? Have you   supported your claims with evidence? Will you be submitting your draft to the   Ashford Writing Center for review?

Write (due Thursday, Day 3)

Share your   essay rough draft by attaching it to your post as a Microsoft Word document.   Include an APA-formatted references list for the sources used in your essay.   In 200 to 300 words, identify and explain the following: 

  • Describe and explain your        review process. How did you review your rough draft for logical        fallacies, citation errors, and potential plagiarism (e.g., Turnitin)?
  • Discuss any specific        questions you have regarding your essay structure.

Respond to   Peers

In 125 to   200 words each, complete a peer review of at least two of your classmates’   rough drafts. To help ensure that all of your classmates receive feedback, if   possible, review at least one draft that has not yet been reviewed. Please   analyze and discuss the following:

  • Thesis statement
  • Topic sentences and body        paragraphs
  • Research integration
  • Fallacies (e.g., review of        logic)
  • Conclusion
  • Questions and concerns regarding        the development of the essay

Provide   your classmates with thorough feedback for improvement. Substantiate your   ideas and suggestions with specific examples from your classmates’ rough   drafts and the assigned reading materials.
