Critical Reading

As you read, look for ideas you are interested in writing about/responding to (you will eventually narrow to one).

       Support an idea in the reading you agree with

       Challenge an idea in the reading you disagree with

       Discuss an idea that the author has failed to address

       Offer a solution to the issue the author addresses

       Analyze the authorís support & reasons: logic; depth

       Address a related topic that has bearing on the issue
