CAPSTONE CHECKPOINT 2 Capstone CheckPoint In the future I think that thinking critically will influence the way that I read because I now have the tools to better analyze what I am reading. I can better spot the arguments within a piece of writing and break them down easier. Writing I think will have the same effect but just in the reverse. I will be able to take a stance and back it up with sound arguments. I think that learning the difference between sound and valid was good for me because so many people believe that a valid argument means something that it doesn’t. Processing information is also the same as reading. This class has made me look at a lot of things differently. I can spot some rhetorical devices in places that I wasn’t able to before and learning the many different types of them has made it easier to filter through what are actually facts and what’s not.

It can also be used to evaluate to see if they are using persuasive rhetoric devices in order to persuade people to buy something.
