For this ongoing assignment, you will be expected to critically review each of your cohort’s blog posts for content and mechanics. This is an important step in the final publication of assignments to the ONID portfolio. Reviews should be thoughtful, respectful, and constructive and not simply general comments about the the post. Follow these guidelines:
Clarity of message
Cite at least one passage from each post that is the best example of clarity and/or insight, both in terms of relevance of content and strength of writing. Cite an example that supports your comments.
Improvement of message
Cite at least one passage from each post that needs improvement. In each case explain what needs clarification, is misleading, needs additional development, is factually unsupported, etc.
As the blog author, you are free to make the suggested changes, discuss the changes with the critic, or ignore their suggestions. However, these comments will be taken into account by the instructor in his evaluation.
