Organization & Tone (20%) Points Earned: 18%
· The tone is appropriate.

· The introduction provides a sufficient background on the topic and previews major points.

· Paragraph transitions are present, logical, and maintain the flow throughout the paper.

Comments:

I encourage you to more closely follow the format of the Sample Outline for future assignments. One area to consider for improvement relates to the detail in your outline. Consider using a more detailed outline for future work. You can do this by including more information about each section of the article. For example, make sure to have at least three bullet points for each major heading. Also, consider each subject change of the article as a major heading.
