"Demystifies academic argumentation." -- Patricia Bizzell, College of the Holy Cross "This book demystifies rhetorical moves, tricks of the trade that many students are unsure about. It's reasonable, helpful, nicely written ... and hey, it's true. I would have found it immensely helpful myself in high school and college." -- Mike Rose, University of California, Los Angeles "The best tribute to "They Say / I Say" I've heard is this, from a student: "This is one book I'm not selling back to the bookstore." Nods all around the room. The students love this book." -- Christine Ross, Quinnipiac University "The argument of this book is important-that there are "moves" to academic writing ... and that knowledge of them can be generative. The template format is a good way to teach and demystify the moves that matter. I like this book a lot." -- David Bartholomae, University of Pittsburgh "A brilliant book... It's like a membership card in the academic club." -- Eileen Seifert, DePaul University "Students need to walk a fine line between their work and that of others, and this book helps them walk that line, providing specific methods and techniques for introducing, explaining, and integrating other voices with their own ideas." -- Libby Miles, University of Rhode Island "This book uncovers the rhetorical conventions that transcend disciplinary boundaries, so that even freshmen, newcomers to the academy, are immediately able to join in the conversation." -- Margaret Weaver, Missouri State University

Excellent book, good price 12. Mai 2014
Von gwca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I teach composition/rhetoric at a two-year college and I have required the previous (second) edition of this book for a couple years.

I chose this text initially because, unlike a lot of composition texts, the writing voice in TS/IS is very personable, easy to follow, and unpretentious. It occasionally shows a nerdy sense of humor which, surprisingly, my students don't seem to mind.

The book addresses issues that I wish I had been taught as an undergrad, like "saying why it matters," or even the concept of "they say/I say" itself, which looks at how to take empty, boring writing, and put it in context so readers are interested in it. Instead of lecturing about the same tired old essay structure, the book approaches the task like a personal quest: make yourself clear, be interesting, and have integrity as a writer. Anything it omits or only touches on, like MLA style or research tips, can easily be supplemented.

The publisher's price on the second edition (without the readings, many of which can be found online anyway) remains an affordable $25. And I was pleased to see this new third edition also at $25 (on the Norton site, anyway). The price allows me to pair this required text with another inexpensive book on style to capture the more technical side of writing.

My only disappointment is that while TS/IS is FINALLY available as an e-book in the new third edition, it is limited in platform, and comes with this disclaimer: "Our eBooks are Flash based and will not work on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and some Android devices."

So... my students can buy the cheaper e-book for only $15, but they can't view them on the majority of personal devices, which chips away a little at the advantages of the e-book in the first place.

Overall, though, the quality of the advice, content, and style in this book are still better than most texts I've worked with, so I will stick with it for the new year.

My Ivy League mentor impressed by improvements I made using tips from this book 19. Juni 2014
Von Sarah R. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am in a Ph.D. program at Cornell University, but having already completed an undergrad and a Master's degree, I thought my writing was pretty good. However, after using the tips from this book, my Ivy League professor told me my work had substantially improved. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their writing. I also recommend "Making Sense in the Life Sciences: A Student's Guide to Writing and Research" for anyone looking to help organize lots of information into a logical flow/argument.

A Major Resource for Incorporating Others' Ideas into a College-Level Argument 5. Juni 2014
Von Dbrady3702 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book could be used for advanced HS students in its entirety. With scaffolding, the book is a fruitful resource for explaining and supporting the writing of the college level argument. The templates, though they may seem simplistic or mechanical, provide helpful models and scaffolds for the many "moves" in the written argument. The book doesn't cover rhetorical devices, but I have found that teaching each separately helps students.

The explicit professional examples and the templates address one of the greatest difficulties in the writing of so many students, incorporating quotations smoothly, what "They Say," and helping students maintain their voice in what "I say."

I am writing my dissertation for my doctorate and this book is GREAT because it helps with writers block. It gives you phrases to help you get your thoughts going. It is extremely well organized and has been mentioned in several You Tube instructional videos I have watched.

How to teach academic English 29. Mai 2014
Von Michael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Yes, it's true. Academic English is another 'foreign' language. And this book shows the reader why this is the case. It has its own standards of usage, its own rhyme and reason, and it can be taught. What I find especially helpful is the notion that academic, who often are speaking to one another and not to the general public, utilize English in a way that makes many "outsiders." So take this book, look over the most common techniques and templates of academic usage, and you'll be playing ball with the pros in no time.
