Ok I didn't read all of this, but what I read was quite useful. "They Say/ I Say" is a brief guide to lead students away from the usual five-paragraph essay. I know most of this stuff, but I wouldn't recommend it to a college kid; this seems much more appropriate for high school freshmen.

While this book is great for essay structure, I don't think it's very ideal for writing about literature. "They Say/ I Say" seems suitable for objective argumentation such as debating the pros and cons of a Mac or PC.

Really helpful nonetheless!
