Window(s) - or Mac - Shopping

In this week's blog entry, students will evaluate a commercially available product or service using online comparative shopping tools. They will present their research in reviews that consider several evaluative techniques:
  • Assessing the rhetorical situation,
  • Stating an overall claim about the subject,
  • Clarifying their criteria for evaluation,
  • Stating a judgment for each criteria,
  • Supporting each judgment with evidence, and
  • Balancing their evaluation with both positive and negative comments.
 Their evaluations and reviews will feature products ranging from trucks to shoes to vacuum cleaners.
