    Week 3: Evaluation Essay Rough Draft

    The purpose of the Evaluation Essay is to look critically at a particular work. Remember that your essay should, in a detailed, informative way, answer the question “Is this subject of your essay good, bad, or somewhere in between, and why?” Your thesis statement should directly answer this question in one or two sentences, and your body paragraphs should each identify and develop one distinct reason that he or she should see the subject of your essay in the same way as you.

    For example, if your thesis statement is “The iPhone 4S is a fantastic product because of its exceptional number of useful apps, the slick design, and the responsive voice recognition software,” your first paragraph could be about some of the great apps that extend the functionality of the iPhone, how they’re useful, and more importantly, how they make the iPhone a fantastic product.

    In this section, you will write a complete rough draft of the essay. Remember that this essay should directly grapple with the subject you’re working with, and should use direct quotes, citations, and references whenever you reference an outside work. This should not just be a summary or description of your subject. Although a brief summary may be useful for the introductory section of your essay, you must evaluate the subject.

    To properly complete the draft, consider the following steps:

    • Reconsider and clarify your working thesis statement.

    • Reconsider and revise your outline, to make certain that your organization of information will

      effectively prove your thesis statement.

    • Draft topic sentences and body paragraphs for each section in your outline. Make sure that

      each paragraph has a topic sentence and an appropriate amount of supporting detail from your sources. Consider whether the detail in each paragraph relates to the main point of the paragraph. Remember, your paragraphs should be unified, developed, and coherent, and have strong topic sentences.

    • Incorporate your sources by using quotations and paraphrasing your sources in each paragraph. You must cite your sources each time you quote or refer to information in them.

    • Each reference listed should have at least one corresponding in-text citation.

    • Write an appropriate introduction, conclusion, and title for your essay. Your introductory

      section should introduce your reader to the topic and include your thesis statement. Your

      conclusion should restate your thesis and your main points.

    • Finally, add a title that indicates the main idea of the essay, without restating your thesis

      statement.

      This essay should be roughly 750 words in length.

      Make sure to carefully consider the Evaluation Essay rubric as you work through this assignment!

    Assignment Submission and Peer Review

    This assignment consists of two parts:

    Submission Phase: After you have completed your essay according to the instructions, you must submit it by 11:55 pm (EST) on Friday of Week 3 (see 3-1 Evaluation Essay Rough Draft – Submission and Peer Review in this week’s outline). After this deadline passes, we will move on to the second phase of the assignment, so be sure to turn your assignment draft on time in order to have it peer-reviewed.

    Assessment Phase: Second, as part of this assignment, you will also review and critique the drafts of two other students. By critiquing a peer’s work, you’re developing incisive writing skills that will improve your own work. You will be asked to read through each essay once, so you know its purpose and scope. Then read it again and answer each question presented in 2-3

    sentences (worth 2 points each). Feel free to make any additional comments, such as what is working overall and what needs improvement, and please note any grammatical or stylistic problems, as well. Though this submission will be graded by your instructor, your feedback on the rough draft will primarily come from your peers. Your review is due no later than 11:55 pm (EST) on Wednesday of next week.
