Evaluating a persuasive essay

  1. Does the writer take a firm, clear stand on a debatable issue?
  2. Does the writer employ adequate evidence to support that stand?
  3. Does the writer consider his or her audience?
  4. Are main arguments based on logic but employ emotion effectively?
  5. Does the argument take into account and refute counter-arguments?
