(Sample Provided for 2012 Composition Symposium)
In order to generate ideas for your evaluation essay, complete the following listing activity:
- Make a list of at least five products that you would like to purchase in the next year.
- 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.
- 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).
