Talk about Sport Grill Restaurant: lets say you went there last weekend and you have to criticize what youdid like
it and whatyou did NOT the pro and cons about food, service, waiter, everthing good you can say so it look like i
went to that restaurant kind of evaluation

First, visit your subject and take notes. Decide on the restaurant you’d like to evaluate. Resist the temptation
to dash into the first fast food restaurant that you see; instead, consider the local diner or sports bar that
isn’t as well known. Visit the restaurant and take notes before, during, and after your meal. Walk around while
taking notes.The details gained from firsthand knowledge are necessary in concluding that the restaurant is good,
bad, or somewhere in between. Try not to choose a restaurant that involves a faraway location, like Danielle
Cordero’s spring break options in her evaluation found in Chapter 7, since you will be forced to do research on
the Internet to get the details. The point of the field observation is to rely on your own experience and
observations, not someone else’s. Secondly, compile a short list of criteria or standards with which you can
evaluate your restaurant. Choose standards that are detailed; for example, Danielle Cordero’s standards in her
spring break options were (a) a variety of activities with enough time for relaxation for almost a week; (b) food
and shelter not to exceed $60 per person, per night; and (c) the use of one tank of gas to and from the
destination. Notice that each of these three standards is detailed enough and objective; either the destinations
met or did not meet these standards. Your aim at all times is to appear unbiased; objectivity is the “name of the
game” here. Choose just three standards that you will use to judge the effectiveness or quality of the restaurant.
Next, review your notes or research, and pick out details to describe your subject using a balanced approach. That
is, provide information that is positive and negative. Using this approach, bias will be minimized and fairness in
judgment will come across to the reader. Even though her last spring break option, Louisville, became her final
choice, Danielle Cordero still had a short section on the drawbacks of choosing this city, beneath the long
section on its strengths.
Finally, decide on your overall assessment of your subject. Weigh both the advantages and drawbacks, and include
reasons for your decision.
See the chart below on the difference between vague and detailed support. Vague support in the three paragraphs in
the left column consists of plenty of ideas but no examples or analysis of these examples. Detailed support in the
three paragraphs in the right column consists of ideas and examples to support those ideas, followed by analysis.
Note the use of capital letter examples in each paragraph: capital letters that exist in a sentence—not counting
the capitalized first word of a sentence—signal details.

TV has negative effects on young children. Violent programs show that violence easily solves problems. I watch
shows every day and my kids sit with me and watch these shows every day. I see how this statement is correct, that
the programs show that by using violence, you can solve any of your many personal problems very easily. This has a
really negative effect on young kids like my kids, and they see that violent programs easily solve their problems
from the shows that they watch on TV every day. The effects of TV on children can be explosively negative. First,
violent programs let kids know that violence is the answer. So many TV shows aired on family-friendly hours
(afternoon and early evenings) depict people solving their problems by use of force, whether it’s a gun or other
deadly weapon. “CSI: Miami,” for example, aired a show recently showing a man killing a female witness who had to
be disposed of – or she would tell about the illegal prostitution ring he operated. His problem could have been
solved through nonviolent means – turning himself in and serving his prison time – but he chose to take the easy
way out. And this isn’t the only episode; tons of TV shows depict characters who shoot, maim, or torture others
instead of following the law; this is the opposite of the message that society should be showing young children.
“Family Guy,” “The Simpsons,” and “South Park” are perfect examples of programs that solve problems with violence.
I watch these shows sometimes, and every time I watch them there is some type of violence on the show. I remember
one episode of “Family Guy” when the wife learned karate and she got mad with her husband and kicked his butt
using all the karate moves she learned. It is sad that so many shows nowadays show violence and they are teaching
kids that violence is how you solve problems, because I remember once my sister and my brother were fighting. They
should change these shows to make them educational. Second, nonviolent programs let kids know that complex
problems, like losing weight or something else, shouldn’t take time and sweat; instead, it takes money and knowing
the right product – simple solutions. Even nonviolent shows have characters that aren’t exactly role models, and
if there isn’t a role model in a child’s life, he or she will model their behavior on TV characters. “The
Apprentice” is only an hour (45 minutes if commercials are cut) and shows tasks that would normally take days or
weeks be completed in an hour. On one episode, contestants had to make an ad campaign for Levi’s, which would take
a minimum of weeks; they completed it in what seemed like minutes. Unfortunately, this “quick fix” solution is
shown repeatedly, show after show, teaching kids that even the toughest task should take minutes if you’re bright
and clever enough, and if not, you’re not bright at all; quick = intelligence is the formula sold on TV to young,
impressionable minds.
Commercials brainwash kids into seeking quick fixes to problems. The cereal bar commercials can cause children to
dismiss the need for a balanced breakfast. The very popular sports drink commercial vividly advertises the drink
as energy-building and thirst quenching. The bandage commercials have a quick fix to cuts and scrapes. A cereal
has a jingle claiming it to be “magically delicious” when the only magic is how they can put so much sugar in one
box of cereal and pass it off as a breakfast for kids. Finally, commercials brainwash kids to seek quick fixes.
Instead of teaching kids that often lots of effort and hard work are required in a task, commercials teach the
opposite: you can buy your way to success. If you’re overweight, commercials teach kids that popping diet pills
and powders can do the magic that healthy eating and exercise cannot. If you want to look like Kim Kardashian,
simply take QuickTrim, and you’ll look like the reality star in no time: that’s the message. If you want to be a
champion, simply eat Wheaties, the “breakfast of champions,” and you’ll achieve athletic success like any of the
many athletes featured on this cereal box over the years. Kids learn this and believe that any problem, whether
it’s losing weight or getting in shape, has simple solutions. The reality, as we adults know, is far more complex:
you can stuff yourself with any number of quick fixes, but long-term success is dependent on the old standbys:
hard work and perseverance. Why is it so necessary to hide the truth?
