Insufficient

Thesis is somewhat clear, but may not be relevant or demonstrate depth of thinking. Theme statement may be too obvious, unoriginal, or might not be the most relevant theme for the story. Thesis includes three literary elements or devices, author's name, and title but perhaps may be missing one or two of these things.
