40% [Content] Your close reading and interpretation of the text: Do you analyze the text in fine detail—word by word, line by line?

Does your close reading support your thesis statement?

Does each paragraph contain a topic sentence, and do the paragraphs transition smoothly into one another?

30% [Mechanics] Grammar, syntax, spelling, and essay formatting: Have you cited your sources accurately? Have you double-checked for mechanical errors? Do you write in clear sentences, without redundancy and with good diction? (Keep a dictionary close at hand to make sure that you don’t misuse words! A good online one is dictionary.com)
