The original title of the book: The Curious Writer, Brief Edition
For courses in First-Year Composition - Rhetoric.
Puts inquiry at the heart of good writing We write to learn as much as we do to express what we already know. In his remarkably personal and engaging voice, Bruce Ballenger makes that powerful concept central to The Curious Writer, Brief Edition.
The Curious Writer, Brief Edition doesn t read like a textbook or provide a formula for composing essays. Instead, it encourages students to suspend judgment, to ask questions, and to seek answers much like academics do. Yet it covers a wide range of genres beyond the academic essay narrative, profile, review, ethnography, argument, and more all with a distinctive approach and personality that is lacking in other texts. It also reinforces the assumption that genres are malleable with a new chapter on repurposing or re-genre-ing.
Students love that this book helps them learn to write by pursuing their own curiosity. Teachers appreciate that Ballenger provides ample opportunities for students to develop the habits of mind necessary to become critical thinkers and curious writers.
