    This is the book that demystifies academic writing, teaching students to frame their arguments in the larger context of what else has been said about their topic - and providing templates to help them make the key rhetorical moves. The best-selling new composition book published in this century, "They Say/I Say" has essentially defined academic writing, identifying its 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).

They Say/ I Say: The Moves that Matter

by marysasse@aol.com S on Aug 18, 2012

As a long-time English teacher and writing coach, I beleive that "They Say/ I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing" by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein is the single best writing aid I've ever encountered. Its best feature is the template that they provide to help students get a clear picture of the essential nature of an argument and how to frame it. Because it works well with high school students, college kids, and even grad students, I recommend it highly--and buy countless copies to give away to graduating high school seniors, confused undergrads and foreign students who need mentoring. It's a life-saver !
