"They Say / I Say": The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“They Say / I Say” identifies the key rhetorical moves in academic writing, showing students how to frame their arguments in the larger context of what others have said and providing templates to help them make those moves. And, because these moves are central across all disciplines, the book includes chapters on writing in the sciences, writing in the social sciences, and—new to this edition—writing about literature.

Synopsis:

The best-selling book on academic writing—in use at more than 1,500 schools.
