Through the process of critical thinking, a researcher can determine the relevance or effectiveness of a particular article or resource on a chosen topic. It is common to encounter various viewpoints as you consider your topic or research interests and depending on the level of controversy of the topic, the value of evaluating the logic of the article can be significant. Consider a simple example such as the minimum wage. If you were to search for articles on this topic, you would quickly find there are varying viewpoints and opinions.

As you read the article you will source for this written assignment, keep in mind the quality writing tips you have learned in your reading. One significant way to begin improving your writing skills is to improve your reading skills. By reading, at once and on different levels, you will not only be taking in and processing the words (and information) that are displayed—but you will also be consciously assessing the quality of the information, the craft of the writing, and the aesthetics of the formatting.
