  • 8. Just as we must critically evaluate information we read, we must also use critical thinking skills as we view images. Every day we are bombarded with images—pictures, billboards, commercials on television, graphs and charts in newspapers and textbooks, to name just a few examples. Most images slide by without our noticing them, or so we think. But images, sometimes even more than text, can influence us. Their creators have purposes, some worthy, some not. And understanding those purposes requires that we think critically. The methods of viewing images critically are the same as those we use for reading text critically. For example, we preview, analyze, interpret, and evaluate images.
