“They Say / I Say”: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, with 2016 MLA Update (Third Edition) (9780393617436): Gerald Graff, Cathy Birkenstein: Books
THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATE.
The New York Times best-selling book on academic writing―in use at more than 1,500 schools.“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.
