19 Assignment: Evaluation Outline

Once you have chosen your topic, write a thesis and outline using the writing formula. Use the answers from the questions in the Evaluation Brainstorming assignment to guide you as you write your outline.

 This video explains a little bit more about how to write an evaluation and illustrates how it’s possible to create an outline based on your personal opinion alone. Please note that locals pronounce New Braunfels “New Brawn-fulls” and McAdoo’s “Mac-uh-doos.”

Here is a sample outline based on the video above (Feel free to use this as a template!):
