Product Evaluation Essay Brainstorming Activity- 2012 Workshop

(Sample Provided for 2012 Composition Symposium)

In order to generate ideas for your evaluation essay, complete the following listing activity:

  1. Make a list of at least five products that you would like to purchase in the next year.
  1. Pick the one product from your list that you are most excited about. Circle it in your above list. Now make a list of at least four important qualities for this product to fit your needs. This list will eventually become the criteria on which you base your evaluation.
  1. Now make a list of your field of options for this product.  This step will probably require an internet search. List at least 4-5 options. Be sure to list the brand and model name (example: Apple iPhone 4s).
