Discussion notes

One of the biggest challenges in critical thinking is how to access and understand the experiences of others.

You have powerful tools in your rhetorical quiver now:

  • The ability to distinguish between assertion, argument, persuasion, and propaganda
  • How — and why — to put an issue into context
  • How to assess your own biases, assumptions, ideologies, and how they affect what you are doing, thinking, and writing
  • Which of your assumptions are you most skeptical about?
  • Stasis 
  • Writing in order to make something happen

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives” — Audre Lorde
