Critical Thinking Skills Worksheet
Answer each question with at least 90 to 175 words.
1. Explain at least 2 examples of rhetorical devices (e.g., loaded questions, stereotypes, etc.).
Why is it important to understand them in a criminal justice role?
In criminal justice, the essence of using rhetorical devices is to spur communication and
interactions. The essence of these rules is to ensure communication and interactions. For
instance, the use of repetition and amplification are key strategies used in the court of law.
Repetition is common since it helps to improve and spur understanding, communication, and
active listening (Ditrich, 2015). The essence or aim of using amplification is to make a
conversation audible. It applies active listening and the features of speaking, interrogating, and
credibility. To be sound or repeat a given line or statement affirms the statement and its approach

allows the reduction of doubts and uniqueness. It is a process of persuading others and being
credible.
3. Explain 2 relevance fallacies (e.g., straw man, false dilemma, etc.) you might encounter in
criminal justice. How would recognizing these fallacies factor into your decision making?
In criminal justice, dramatic fallacy can affect how a judge or jury can make a decision. In taking
into accounts all the criminal cases, the most heinous of them, murder, rape with violence, and
capital cases, take a tiny fraction (Senior, Crowther-Dowey, & Long, 2007). Consider the large
factor, which can influence one to make an effective decision-making process without being
dramatic. Another important fallacy is the cops and courts fallacy, stating that the police and
courts' role does not have power. It is the mentality of a society that allows the courts to make
and ensure a competitive diversity or actions.
