It is not an essay! I have attached two different articles and there are three questions (parts) need to be answered separately about EACH ARTICLE!
1- On a scale of 1 to 10, how compelling do you consider this piece of writing to be for the audiences of students and readers of The Exchange? Specifically, why so? (short&complete answer)
2- On a scale of 1 to 10, how rhetorically aware do you find this piece of writing to be—with its use of language, tone, and style, for example—in attempting to connect with the target audiences of The Exchange? Specifically, why so? (short&complete answer)
3- provide evidence-based feedback (200-300 words)
Here is the homework description:
please compose your formal Editor’s Letter to the author. We encourage you to begin by articulating the author’s argument as you see it; this way you build credibility as a reviewer by showing that you understand what they’re trying to accomplish and how they’re going about it.
Your letter might then elaborate on your experience as a reader. How do you respond to the rhetorical approach the writer has chosen? How might others respond? What is working particularly well and why do you think so? How do you consider the writer’s use of support for their claims? How are you engaging with the ideas of the piece, the language and tone used to convey them, and their specific arrangement?
Then, provide evidence-based feedback to the author that explainsand supports your editorial decision of (Accept with Revisions, Revise and Resubmit, or Decline Submission). Your credibility as an editor and your overall decision will depend upon how well you articulate why you are making such a recommendation.
In all cases, authors have the opportunity to revisit their piece before moving forward in the publication process. Therefore, you’re strongly encouraged as an editor to provide feedback with specific suggestions for how the author might further develop the submission to be even more compelling.
Please keep in mind that your editorial decision will help determine which arguments will be read by thousands of people. The decisions you make as an editor are a reflection of what you think really matters, and what writing you believe has the power to actually persuade belief and behavior. Thank you in advance for taking on your role as editor with sincerity and respect.
