This Concise abbreviation of The Curious Writer offers an inquiry-driven approach, a focus on the connections between personal and academic writing, and a personal voice that engages and motivates students.
The Curious Writer emphasizes inquiry as both a method of discovery and learning and a driving force behind the writing process. The book operates on the principle that writers who begin with questions, rather than answers, achieve better results in their work. It treats research, revision, and critical reading skills (of both texts and visuals) as organic components of every writing process. Each of the eight writing assignment chapters offers integrated coverage of these three key activities and also provides special attention digital tools for invention and research. Offering a unique, entertaining, and personal author voice, The Curious Writer is sure to grab students’ interest and motivate them to write.
In just ten chapters, the Concise Edition encourages students to use writing as a tool of discovery while composing and revising their own reviews, proposals, and critical, personal, argumentative and research essays.
