Current Issues and Enduring Questions, 11th Edition, (PDF) is a textbook and reader that serves as a comprehensive resource for teaching persuasive and argument writing, critical thinking, and research. It includes readings on topics that concern university students, such as being seen as “the other” and student loan forgiveness, matters that college students will want to involve with and debate. Extensive coverage of contemporary and classic approaches to argument includes Rogerian, Toulmin, Aristotelian, and a range of alternative views, such as evaluating and writing about visual arguments.

This updated 11th edition of the ebook Current Issues and Enduring Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking and Argument, with Readings does more than ever to make argument concepts strong, and to give students strategies for making effective arguments. For today’s growing visual learners who are challenged to separate what’s real from what’s not, visual flowcharts and new activities support information literacy. Newly annotated readings emphasize important rhetorical moves. And new readings explore controversial issues like mass incarceration, cultural appropriation, and the way computer algorithms make biased decisions.
