Thorough proofreading is required. •The main argument is unclear or underdeveloped. Try to directly answer the question with your thesis statement, or create a thesis statement which clearly and directly states your argument. •Poorly structured sentences; the words may be spelled correctly but they meaning of the sentence is hard to understand. Thorough proofreading is required. •Poorly structured paragraphs; the information in the paragraph is arranged in a way that makes it hard to understand. Review PPE essay paragraph format. •Poorly structured essay. Your essay needs to have clearly written paragraphs. This includes an introduction, body paragraphs and a conclusion. You either have not included these or it is too difficult to tell these parts of your essay apart. •You have not provided the context for your quotation. You have a quotation, but you haven’t introduced the speaker or character. Remember that you need to tell your reader who or what your quotation is about before you begin quoting or paraphrasing your source material. •Insufficient evidence. Make sure that the proof you include actually shows your argument in action. Your proof should act as a demonstration of the thing you want to discuss. •Incorrect citation. Your evidence is complete but you have not included the author who wrote it or the page number you found it on. This is plagiarism. You must follow each quotation with a correct citation: e.g. (Smith 64). •Insufficient explanations. The explanation you provided either a) summarizes what happens in the quotation but does not expand on it and/or b) does not show the way in which your evidence is actually related to your subtopic and thesis. The purpose of including evidence is to use it to support a point you’re trying to make. Your explanation is the part of your essay which creates this connection. •Incorrect Works Cited Page. Your Works Cited page needs to include each of the sources you’ve used in your essay. It is either the case that you a) haven’t included all of these sources, b) have used incorrect punctuation when writing these sources and or c) have not properly formatted the page by placing the sources out of alphabetical order. •You have not followed MLA formatting. MLA formatting requires page numbers, a proper header and title for your work, correct citations and a correct and complete Works Cited page
