Peer Review: Memo to Evan Crisp

Your message for Evan looks organized and concise. It was easy to comprehend your suggestions for him and use the YOU attitude actively. I have outlined suggestions for you to improve similar documents for the future below:


  • Bullet point list made the document easy to read
  • Could expand the introduction to create the atmosphere for a positive message, rather than a list of things he should do.

Writing Style and Expression:

  • The You attitude was active throughout the document
  • Maintained a direct and positive explanation to Evan that was easy to understand
  • Combining some of the examples that may be repetitive will strengthen each point. For example, you could combine the points about writing with a professional tone with avoiding informal acronyms and respecting the reader.

Grammar and Typos:

  • No spelling errors or incorrect capitalization were found

Concluding Comments:

I hope that you find my suggestions useful for editing your document. To reiterate some of the main points:

  • Adding more substance to your introductory statement
  • Combining repetitive points
  • Changing the tone of some suggestions
