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.

  • Introductory readings establish chapter themes and provide context for vocabulary exercises.
  • Case studies of student writing provide realistic models of the writing process.

  • Part II highlights the issue of academic honesty and shows students how to quote, paraphrase, summarize, cite, and incorporate source material.

Appendices provide comprehensive grammar and mechanics review for reference and practice.


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.
