Gregory Sicard Academic Benchmarks 1. I will employ critical inquiry techniques in my course work and be able to demonstrate how it benefits me. When I write essays I use critical inquiry when I need to put a sentence in my own words. Critical inquiry techniques helped me comprehend a text by underlining key points which are the facts. I am able to pick out the important facts from each paragraph. Critical Inquiry techniques are extremely beneficial because it is easier to understand what is being read. In high school my teachers never taught me these techniques but I realized that the reading techniques that I used were not as successful as they are now.
