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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"" demystifies academic discourse and shows students that writing well means mastering some key rhetorical moves--the most important of which is to summarize what others have said ("they say") in order to set up one's own argument ("I say"). Students learn that writing is always part of a larger conversation, and the book provides templates to show students how to bring their own views in conversation with those expressed by others.

Synopsis:

The best-selling book on academic writing, now with a NASTA compliant high school binding.

Synopsis:

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 book that demystifies academic writing, now in a high school hardcover edition with an introduction and teaching notes by Jim Burke.
