"The Strunk & White of academic writing."—Richard Bullock, Wright State University As employers, politicians, parents, and other citizens lament the decline of writing skills among Americans, this little book comes to the rescue. An instant bestseller when it first appeared as a college textbook, "They Say / I Say" gives writers precisely what they need to know in the all-important domain of persuasive writing. Cutting through the clutter of educational diagnoses and nostrums, it goes right to the heart of what writers most need to do, and that is to listen to what others are saying (they say), summarize it, and then offer their own argument (I say) as a response. Offering user-friendly templates to help writers make these key moves in their own writing, "They Say / I Say" is already being called the Strunk & White of persuasive writing.

The book that demystifies academic writing, now in a high school hardcover edition with an introduction and teaching notes by Jim Burke. “They Say / I Say” demystifies academic discourse and shows students that writing well means mastering some key rhetorical moves—the most important of which is to summarize what others have said (“they say”) in order to set up one’s own argument (“I say”). Students learn that writing is always part of a larger conversation, and the book provides templates to show students how to bring their own views in conversation with those expressed by others.
