"They Say / I Say teaches students the rhetorical moves found in persuasive writing across all disciplines. The authors focus on the central rhetorical move that gives the book its title: how to begin with what others have said ("they say") in order to set up one's own argument ("I say"). The approach is practical and effective, and the language is engaging and jargon-free."--Publisher's website.
