This book gives students an insiders view of what professors are looking for when they set essays and assignments. It also leads its readers through all of the skills required for the process of essay and assignment writing at a number of levels.
This book demystifies academic writing by identifying its key rhetorical moves, the most important of which is to summarize what others have said ("they say") to set up one's own argument ("I say"). The book also provides templates to help students make these key moves in their own writing.
