In their Introduction to the “They Say /I Say” book, Gerald Graff and Cathy Brikenstein strongly believe that their templates will improve the reader’s writing skills. Graff and Brikenstein insist that writing is just like an activity we are used to do continuously, and if we follow certain process, we improve our writing and “help [our] writing become more original and creative.” (11) The authors also added that writers must give the opposing argument (they say) and then comes the thesis, which “should always be a response to the arguments of others.” (4) Personally, I agree with most of the points that the authors argued about. I personally found the templates the offered in the Introduction and in the first chapters helpful. In addition,
Chapter four of They Say I Say, written by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein, explain ways to offer your view in a conversation or in your academic writing. Chapter four provide details about the three basic ways to response to other people ideas, such as, agreeing, disagreeing or both. These techniques show his/her stand relative to other’s ideas. Mastering these basic ways can helps readers/writers understand more of where the author or their view stand.

A parallel triad has the effect of making ideas more clear “...Attention, diligence, and steady application”(Line 25). This particular triad has the effect of rephrasing the words to create a more concise statement. “...but add justice, fortitude, and every manly virtue…” (Line 59). This instance of parallel triad, it strengthens the mood and creates a more powerful and encouraging. It also creates a memorable statement, because they are positive words which have positive impacts of the reader.
I have learned through English 102 that a strong academic sentence needs to flow well and include a large vocabulary. In the Rhetorical Essay Draft, I used words focused on the past and my professor said use present tense when expressing general truths, when writing about literate and when quoting, summarizing, or paraphrasing an author’s view. I have learned that writing in the present tense will make the essay have a stronger academic tone. Each tip that my professor has given me helped me excel on each essay throughout English
The Buddha gives the paper a very strong sense of ethics and that the things in this article are true. The writer talks about a survey that was done by the Journal of Science and the Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman.

Marywood’s core values include service, excellence, empowerment, respect, and catholic identity. These are all great attributes to have, but I believe the most important is excellence.

Covering the first four chapters; “they say”, “I say”, “trying is all together”, and “In specific academic context” I will showcase how Graff and Birkenstein’s book aid students to better express their personal thoughts. A writer must explicitly clarify what his or her thesis is responding to. Graff and Birkenstein open their book with a clear realistic example of a speaker’s argument that never indicated the opposition’s claim. The authors insist that, “ to keep an audience engaged, a writer needs to explain what he or she is responding to.”1 Through positioning this information at the very start of the book,
Rhetorical devices in writing often can make or break an author’s work. In Barbara Jordan’s autobiography Becoming Educated she uses a wide selection of strong rhetorical strategies that further prove her point, but two in particular reinforce the story. The perspective she gives to her story and her experience draw the reader in and make the work seem more personal.

It is essential to captures the reader 's interest and this will be done by finding how to well write a thesis sentence that will want the readers to keep reading and find out more about the thesis. In “Does Texting Affect Writing?”, Cullington used voice markers to demonstrate what others had to say about texting. For the reader, the voice markers help to integrate quotes of what others stated connecting it back to the argument. This made the text run smoothly for the reader and not lose focus. “To avoid confusion in your own writing, make sure that at every point your reader can clearly tell who is saying what” (71).
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something.
