I think this is a very strong peer review assignment, and could really benefit the students. I especially like the subjective question at the end, asking what the student liked about the essay they reviewed.

The question about logical progression under section B is also a good idea, but perhaps needs to incorporate more explicit language about organization and framework. It's unclear what exactly you're expecting in terms of logical progression.

That's right! We might ask them to see if the reasons, supporting details, and examples are written in an order that is easy for them to process, and if not how they would change the order.
