With scaffolding, the book is a fruitful resource for explaining and supporting the writing of the college level argument. The templates, though they may seem simplistic or mechanical, provide helpful models and scaffolds for the many "moves" in the written argument. The book doesn't cover rhetorical devices, but I have found that teaching each separately helps students.

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. The template format is a good way to teach and demystify the moves that matter. I like this book a lot. - -David Bartholomae, University of Pittsburgh.

Provides user-friendly templates to help writers make those moves in their own writing. Second, this book grew out of writing templates that Cathy Birkenstein developed in the 1990s, for use in writing and literature courses she was teaching. Many students, she found, could readily grasp what it meant to summarize an author, to support a thesis with evidence, to entertain a counterargument, or to identify a textual contradiction, but they often had trouble putting these concepts into practice in their own 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.

I was given this book as a gift from my mentor during my first year of teaching high school, and haven't stopped using it since. I teach 8th grade at the moment, and this can easily be modified and used in middle and high school as well as college. It is the definitive text for argumentative writing. It has a collection of sentence stems/starters'templates for every circumstance (e.g. agreeing with a rebuttal) as well as a section devoted to transitions, verbs for making a claim, etc. It takes much of the guesswork out of writing an argumentative essay. We know that writing at the college level is expository or argumentative. This is the one book you need to get in order to write well. That's what I SAY. And that's what THEY SAY.

I have always thought of writing as a form of unilateral communication lacking any sort of feedback mechanism. Looking at writing as some form of conversation, as Graff and Birkenstein point out in “They Say, I Say”, was therefore different yet refreshing in many respects.

For some, academic writing can be no different than a “foreign language” and in that regard, the structure and templates provided in the book serve to significantly reduce the learning curve associated with academic writing. As for the criticism on whether templates serve to stifle creativity, I would argue that some forms of writing require more structure compared to others, which is why templates tend to serve well for such forms.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the book and can definitely foresee the need of referring back to it over and over again.

This is a great book to help teach students how to frame arguments. This is my third copy. I lost one loaning it out at work (I'm an educator), another I gave to my younger brother when he went away to college. I bought it again to use with Kelly Gallagher's "Staying true to what works in the ELA classroom".
The sentence frames really are the most useful aspects of this book. I have to teach argumentative writing and the frames help me to model good writing to my students. It's a great tool to have on hand. Short and sweet.

I am writing my dissertation for my doctorate and this book is GREAT because it helps with writers block. It gives you phrases to help you get your thoughts going. It is extremely well organized and has been mentioned in several You Tube instructional videos I have watched.

I am in a Ph.D. program at Cornell University, but having already completed an undergrad and a Master's degree, I thought my writing was pretty good. However, after using the tips from this book, my Ivy League professor told me my work had substantially improved. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their writing. I also recommend "Making Sense in the Life Sciences: A Student's Guide to Writing and Research" for anyone looking to help organize lots of information into a logical flow/argument.

The book They Say, I Say is the book I wish I had had at the beginning of my own graduate studies. It is a practical book that demystifies academic writing through the provision of basic templates that help first-year college students grasp the structure of good academic argument. I see it not as a cheat-sheet or prescriptive form of instruction, but as a useful tool that uncovers the patterns that already exist in writing and turns them into techniques students can adopt. Within the templates there is still plenty of room for students to add in their own perspectives and apply critical thinking. Intuitive readers pick these moves up through reading, but even the best of us can use the kind of explicit help that Graff and Birkenstein's templates provide.The templates and lessons in this book unlock the secrets of good writing and argument for anyone interested in improving their written arguments.

I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who is trying to write more effectively. My professor required us to purchase this book since it was used heavily throughout the semester, which i'm glad she did, because "They Say/ I Say" provides very helpful details/examples to help strengthen your writing. The title pretty much how the whole book is formatted. It begins with telling you the rights and wrongs then proceeds to explain how what "they say" can be worded. After reading the "they say" section of the text it'll move on to I say which is of course your reason of support or contradiction.

Although this was used in a college course, most of the reading was structured to easily be able to understand. As this book included many 'how not to' examples I found myself relating to much of that category. Overall, I found this book very helpful and would recommend this book if you want to make your writing more effective especially in the argumentative side.
This book is well written, easy to understand and will really help you in writing better for English classes or writing in general. Great tips, easy to follow and comes with examples. This book was bought for my class, and everyone in my class said the same thing, they that they learned a great deal from this book. Dont worry about what revised book you get, they are pretty much the exact same.
