The essential little book that students love for demystifying academic writing, reading, and research

Millions of students love “They Say / I Say” because it offers lively and practical advice they can use throughout their college career (and beyond). Now, students can learn how to connect their “I Say” to broader public conversations through a new chapter “In My Experience,” and they will engage more deeply with their assigned readings thanks to new co-author Laura Davies’s work on both a dynamic Norton Illumine Ebook and an energetic revision of the version with readings—making the Sixth Edition an even more useful tool for students throughout their college experience.
