Write a three-to-four-page review essay with an evaluation claim on a topic of your choice.


The purpose of this assignment is to argue the extent to which a given thing-in-question fulfills the qualities or standards of its class according to established criteria. Evaluation arguments like this are very common in everyday life--especially in cases where writers need to effectively explain that something is

good, effective, successful, feasible, or valuable for a particular reason.

As you choose a topic, consider the categories explained by our textbook: product reviews, media reviews, place evaluations, and evaluative essays. Try, too, to pick something that interests you personally and that is local if possible. Keep in mind, you’ll receive extra credit if you provide evidence (photos, for example) that you have had first-hand experience with your subject.


1. Start by identifying a topic that interests you personally and spend some time isolating the category in which it belongs (i.e. family restaurant, action movie, science fiction novel, etc.). Next, spend sometime researching/brainstorming the most appropriate criteria for judgment.

2. Develop a working thesis that includes a claim and reasons joined by the a connective element like the word “because.” You should eventually use these reasons--three or more, ideally--to shape the body of your essay.

3. Decide who your target audience will be. Think specifically about who you are trying to convince, and what you want them to do (i.e. think more critically about the issue, change their perspective, take a particular action, etc.).

4. Start writing by drafting an introduction that sets-up a situation or problem your essay responds to--such as a misunderstanding, difference of opinions, or need for more information. Then, use a paragraph to explain and justify the criteria you will use to evaluate the thing-in-question. Now you can begin using research, observation, and description to support your judgment. As your essay takes

shape, make sure you include a “naysayer” paragraph that evaluates an opposing point-of-view, and that your conclusion helps readers see what they’ve gained from your essay.
