WK2DQ1 How does critical thinking affect you as a reader and writer? How can thinking critically improve your writing? I feel that questioning everything I do will make me better at it and improve it. This can apply in basic thing like running, driving, and so much more. If you question something like driving and ask yourself what can I do to make this better, then you will become better at it. I think when you read and write you should think critically, so you can make the piece better in the end. If you are writing something and you ask yourself questions about what you are writing you are brainstorming in your head. This is why you should always reread a rough draft of a paper you write, so you can go back and make it better. When you are reading you should always think critically so you can question the authors material and if you are peer reviewing their work you can help them to improve their writing. WK2DQ2 Read the following Discussion Question response written by Owen, a fictional Axia student. Identify areas of vagueness and ambiguity and discuss how you might clarify the e-mail message using the writing principles addressed in the text. Hi class, I don’t have a lot of time to explain but off the top of my head answer is as a reader critical thinking affects me all ways. Not just reading but writing too. Sometimes what I read I must write about later like this discussion question so clearly I have to read. Clear writing is the hardest thing in the world. Though I don’t the average writer has to write business rapports which can build report and be interpersonal. In critical writing, writers construct sentences with clear intentions. Businesspeople write fast because the business people I know are always in a hurry. Business reading is reports, memos and articles. My aunt is a university professor and she writes articles for journals. She is smart and a better writer than my uncle who is a businessman. So critical writers are better than business writers. But critical writing like argumentative essays have structure, so business writing has structure too. It’s not a matter of one kind of writing being harder than the other it’s that the structure is harder. Thanks, Owen

I agree and he could have also asked a friend or family member to read over it really quick and give him an opinion on it. I have my boyfriend read all my assignments before turning them in just so I know that if there is something I missed then he is most likely to catch it. A second person revising something is always good.
