I’m working on a Writing question and need guidance to help me study.
Please select a text for deeper analysis:
After you select your text, answer each of the following questions.
- Identify 1-2 assumptions that are present in the text. Provide a clear description of what you see as an assumption and why you’ve identified it as such. (Remember that assumptions are ideas one takes for granted to be true but, upon closer inspection, are actually untrue.)
- What blocks to critical thinking does the author set up as obstacles for the reader? Provide specific examples and an explanation of why you selected that particular block. (You might want to review the Critical Thinking Blocks presentation attached)
- Describe your own response to the text. What did you think when you first viewed it? Identify at least one positive critical thinking habit and discuss how you utilized this habit while interacting with the text. Please be specific.
