Evaluating the Evidence
One way to analyze an argument is to evaluate the evidence presented. A well built argument must be supported by accurate, sufficient, and relevant evidence.
Rather than simply accepting everything they read, critical readers ask questions. Critical reading is very important not only in academic reading, writing, listening, and speaking but also in everyday life.
