Summary

Engaging Questions takes a practical approach to composing, with a view that good writing occurs in the context of critical thinking. By using a consistent methodology that prompts students to learn and practice "the art of questioning," Engaging Questions presents writing as one essential part of the critical thinking whole, ultimately empowering students to become skilled thinkers and confident writers. In combination with CONNECT Composition, integrated and paired with Blackboard, the program offers a powerful and unique print and digital solution for those looking for a new, more current rhetoric.
