what is the authors do vs why they do it

Part of critically thinking about an argument is to look beyond what the authors do and think about why they make the choices that they make/what their intention is. Looking at the “why” not only helps us break down and analyze arguments, but it also helps us when we write our own as it forces us to consider our own choices when crafting our arguments.

To help us think about these things, please do your best to complete the worksheet below.
