They Say, I Say demystifies academic writing by identifying its key rhetorical moves, the most important of which is to summarize what other have said (“they say”) to set up one’s own argument (“I say”).

This audiobook also provides templates to help students make these key moves in their own writing. This version includes readings that demonstrate those moves—and provide stimulating conversations for them to enter.

The third edition includes an anthology of forty-four readings that will provoke students to think—and write—about five important issues, including two new ones: “Is higher education worth the price?” and “Why does it matter who wins the big game?”
