They Say, I Say really conveys the style of academic writing. I've used this book to teach first-year writing. The authors explain basic skills like quoting, summarizing, and refuting others' arguments.

MelissaSue81 One of my students actually recommended this for me/ other students. I want to get my hands on it 7mo
JLaurenceCohen @MelissaSue81 you should! It's very helpful 7mo

LiteraryinLititz The blurb is only one sentence. What's it like? 3y
BookishMarginalia @LiteraryinLititz It's a really accessible guide to academic writing as a conversation between sources, and between writers. It uses frames (aka templates) to help students understand how to use evidence, introduce opposing points, and advance arguments. This edition also has many excellent essays with useful questions to facilitate "joining the conversation." The other edition is: 3y

I've been MIA, working on some big things...looks like the new year will add some academia back to my life! I interviewed for a position teaching Composition and am relying to restart my Master's Thesis. Super excited for the new challenges ahead!

ReadingEnvy Congrats! I use parts of this book when I teach about avoiding accidental plagiarism. 3y
Karli @ReadingEnvy - I'm reading it now and brain storming for additional texts. 3y
lynneamch Good for you! Keep at it. I didn't get my MA until my 40s and loved the classroom until I retired. 3y
Karli @lynneamch thank you!!!! Goal is by 40...next Nov. 3y

I'm prepping my fall classes, so that means composition reading is inserting itself into my book pile. 📚📚📚

Bird I had this textbook too and honestly I really enjoyed it! 3y
LyndseyReads @Bird Good to hear! Did you have it as a student or a teacher? 3y
Bird I had it as a student. I would recommend it as a teacher too. 3y
