|An instant bestseller when it first appeared as a college textbook, this lively guide gives writers precisely what they need to know to be effective and persuasive.|
From the Publisher:
In use at more than 800 schools, ?They Say / I Say? broke new ground in the teaching of academic writing, showing that writing well means mastering key rhetorical moves, the most important of which is to summarize what others have said (?they say?) to set up one's own argument (?I say?)--and providing templates to help students make these key moves in their own writing. Now available in two versions, with and without an anthology of 32 readings.
