Facts or opinions—a simple review

What question types can you use when evaluating facts andopinions from a text?
Any other distinguishing features of facts and opinions?
 
Assumptions and presuppositions(Nuttall 2005)
An
assumption
is anything we would take for granted. Similarly, a
presupposition
issomething that we would
assume
about others.
Assumptions and presuppositions affect reading in that a writer can have presuppositionsabout what the reader 
knows
, and the reader can have presuppositions about what thewriter 
is trying to say
.
Both can be wrong about each other.
 
When reading, we are influenced by different purposes, opinions, backgrounds andexperiences, and schemata (the framework of our thoughts and understanding).
These affect reading because the author expects of us to either possess the sameknowledge and experience, or shares/understand the same opinions, attitudes, andemotions. Not
recognizing differences in these
leads to a wrong understanding of what atext is saying.
The purpose for today’s lesson is to help expose both
our own opinions
that can affectour understanding of facts in a text, and
writers’ own opinions
that can influence the factsto persuade the reader.
