Read the article. Read all the comments. Be part of the full discussion.
When you read an article make sure to analyze the information closely. When you do that, you will better comprehend what is happening in that particular article. Reading what other people comment is important so you can compare your ideas with them. To be part of the discussion you should comment back if it is online and if you are in a classroom you can be engaged in the conversation.
Constructive criticism only. Critique the idea, not the person. Being derogatory or inflammatory distracts the conversation. Respect other people and their opinions and ideas.
Constructive criticism is very useful, it can be used to learn and start conversations on why the idea is lacking information. Do not be disrespectful just because you don’t agree with their idea. Use other people’s ideas to add to your own ideas not to put other people down.
Treat people the way you want to be treated.
Treating other people without respect can cause arguments and fights between people, in society we do not want that to happen. If you treat people with respect, it can build friendships with other people.
