Asking Questions: A Rhetoric for the Intellectual Life
A short, inviting rhetoric for freshman composition, Asking Questions is based on active inquiry and active learning and gives students practice in the writing they will do in their courses across the college curriculum. The six chapters of Asking Questions ground the freshman course in the most common academic tasks, emphasizing the fundamental importance of making and supporting worthwhile claims.
Asking Questions leads students through such concerns as rhetorical setting, audience, and writing purposes and processes within a straightforward, accessible framework.
