Engaging Writing, a newly expanded two-level series, gives students the concepts and skills they need for success in academic writing. Engaging Writing provides clear, step-by-step instruction in the writing process, focusing first on paragraphs ( Engaging Writing 1 ) and progressing to essays ( Engaging Writing 2 ). Engaging Writing fully supports the needs of intermediate to advanced ESL learners. Features of Engaging Writing 1: Well-crafted instructional sequence allows for progressive skill building.
Appealing themes and topics stimulate discussion and provide ideas for writing.
Realistic models provide benchmarks for students to judge their own work.
Guided writing activities show students how to brainstorm, focus, and organize.
Appendices include a review of grammar and mechanics with exercises. Together Engaging Writing 1 and 2 feature a solid pedagogical core, using clearly presented and logically sequenced rhetorical, grammatical, and lexical teaching points supported by high-interest activities.
