The best-selling book that demystifies academic writing

This book identifies the key rhetorical moves in academic writing. It shows students how to frame their arguments as a response to what others have said and provides templates to help them start making the moves. The fourth edition features many NEW examples from academic writing, a NEW chapter on Entering Online Discussions, and a thoroughly updated chapter on Writing in the Social Sciences. Finally, two NEW readings provide current examples of the rhetorical moves in action.

DEMYSTIFIES ACADEMIC WRITING
They Say / I Say teaches students the rhetorical moves found in persuasive writing across all disciplines. The authors focus on the central rhetorical move that gives the book its title: how to begin with what others have said (“they say”) in order to set up one’s own argument (“I say”). The approach is practical and effective, and the language is engaging and jargon-free.

SHOWS HOW WRITING WELL MEANS ENGAGING WITH THE VIEWS OF OTHERS
Students learn to develop ideas not in isolation but as a response to what others are already saying. For example, “I disagree with X’s view that ___ because ___,” “Although I agree with X up to a point, I cannot accept her assumption that ___.”

PROVIDES TEMPLATES FOR MAKING THE RHETORICAL MOVES THAT MATTER
Students need a place to start. The straightforward templates help students with the structure and language to make sophisticated rhetorical moves in their writing.

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts. As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning.

The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced. Protein structures better illustrate structure-function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing open-ended questions highlighting "What We Don’t Know," introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text. Thought-provoking end-of-chapter questions have been expanded to all chapters, including questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, the immune system, and pathogens.
