Evaluating A Piece of Technology

What makes something good? What makes something great? What makes something bad? These are the questions you need to answer to be able to explain whether something is worth while doing or why something should be avoided. We evaluate things every day, but the key to giving an effective evaluation is to explain clearly the reasons that lead you to make this evaluation.

For this essay, your task is to evaluate something that you do or encounter on your weekend/“free time”:

Sample Topics: Do not writing any product of iPhone



World of Warcraft

Google Chrome

An Album/ Podcast

An Arcade / Sport

A game/video game

An Ap

A TV Program … or any activity you can think of


Your evaluation should either be positive or negative opinion about why I should/should not do this on my weekends.


In a time when the government is interested in watching everything its citizens do, the facial recognition software in Apple’s Pictures provides an ethical dilemma because it removes an individual’s right to anonymity.


Your essay must use the standard structure expected of any academic essay:

An Introduction with a thesis at the end

A concluding paragraph that wraps up your argument

You need to evaluate your subject using three or more separate criteria. A paragraph should be devoted to each criteria.

You also need to include a counterargument that consists of two parts:

1. The opposing opinion (If your evaluation is negative, the counter argument would be positive.
