Synopsis

The Curious Writer by Bruce Ballenger

The Curious Writer, an assignment-oriented, all-in-one rhetoric-reader-handbook, stresses the connections between personal and academic writing. 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.
