With a Foreword by Jim Burke

 

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

They Say / I Say” 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.
