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.
