Introduction: Connecting Your Learning  "Thinking while you are reading" The second half of the course continues to build a list of questions that you need to ask yourself while you  read, to make sure that you are paying close attention to what you are reading and to increase your  comprehension.  The upcoming lessons will continue to help you accomplish the course competencies and your own reading  goals. You will continue to develop an intelligent basis for evaluating arguments. In the previous lesson we  studied the power of the word "and" when it exists in a compound statement and indicates that two statements  are logically connected. Can you think of several specific situations where this kind of reasoning occurs in  order to persuade us? Try to think of a favorite commercial that uses this strategy. (To increase your learning,  write down your thoughts.)  We are continuing to ask you to analyze and evaluate arguments. The main questions are: Is the argument  logical? Is the argument objective? Is the argument able to stand on its own with logical support for the  conclusion, or does it include devices and techniques to (unfairly) persuade us?  Focusing Your Learning  The focus for this lesson will be the course competencies regarding accuracy, logic and evidence given in  support. The complete list of course competencies is in your syllabus. The lesson competencies are then  broken down into specific lesson objectives.  Course Competencies 1. Evaluate, in writing, an author’s accuracy, logic completeness, and clarity.  2. Evaluate, in writing, the nature of evidence given in support of an author's argument. 3. Apply critical reading skills to evaluate, in writing, all or part of an author’s argument. Lesson Objectives
