4.         What is the author’s main point?  What is the one thing he or she is trying to argue, explain,  or show? 

5.         Evaluate the effectiveness of the intro and conclusion.  Does the intro effectively capture your attention?  Does it clearly include the essay’s main point?  Does the conclusion provide a satisfying ending?
