This is a presentation project assignment sheet. It requires students to use Consumer Reports and any up-to-date consumer product testing company in order to report on the factors one should consider when purchasing a product.
So often, young people, make purchases on what is "cool", or going along with the crowd rather than based on facts and factors that are important before making a decision.
This is a "simulation" assignment in which students pretend they have been hired to make a presentation on their particular product to a consumer group. They will identify the factors to consider when buying a particular product.
The products students have reported on are cars, make-up, vacuums, coffee makers, clothes soaps, computers, cell phones etc.
Students love this assignment and they appreciate knowing there are important things to consider before purchasing a product (especially an expensive item such as a car).
