EVER EDU CORNEJO HUAMAN ENGL 1010 X34 / 2021 FALL TERM Chapter one is based on how to think and act rhetorically, listen carefully with respect, and join the conversation with relevant topics. This strategy is useful not only because it helps to propose some ideas with two or more viewpoints, but also it makes people agree in the same critical message. Moreover, this strategy helps to “develop strong critical and ethical habits of mind that will help you engage with others in responsible ways” (Lunsford, y otros, 2020). Besides that, there are some steps to think rhetorically in a correct way. The first step to thinking rhetorically is to listen carefully what it is happening around due to the fact that it allows you to analyze the other person's words and get their viewpoints. The importance of this step is knowing what the conversation is about. After that, you can draw conclusions, and therefore you can join with a more truthful foundation. The second step is to realize what your motivations are and why you would take the position of other people. In other words, the ideas must be analyzed and synthesized to be able to explain people with a concrete idea in order to be able to speak accurately. Also, it is important to give credit to people whom you are quoting or if you are arguing for someone else's idea. Finally, my reflection on this topic is the knowledge gained about discussions. I learn that every time that I want to participate, I must first listen carefully. Then I will be able to analyze and synthesize all the gained information. After that, I should think critically and decide if I agree or disagree with the other person. Finally, after doing all these steps mentioned before, I can join into the conversation and talk with a critical mind showing respect about other points of view, but letting people know what I really thing about the topic.
