The purpose of this activity is to identify whether evaluation helps or hinders creativity. Each student selects two events to attend or participate in that are connected with some form of product (e.g., movie, concert, private playing of a song or album, a restaurant, art exhibit, etc.). For the first event, read a review for that event, then experience the event. For the second event, first experience the event, THEN read a review for the product. After experiencing both events, in a 3- to 5-page paper, reflect on how criticism for an event might impact your perception of it as being creative or not.
