Graff, Gerald.

Preface to the third edition -- Preface: Demystifying academic conversation -- Introduction: Entering the conversation -- Part 1. They say. They say : starting with what others are saying ; Her point is : the art of summarizing ; As he himself puts it : the art of quoting -- Part 2. I say. Yes/no/okay, but : three ways to respond ; And yet : distinguishing what you say from what they say ; Skeptics may object : planting a naysayer in your text ; So what? Who cares? : saying why it matters -- Part 3. Tying it all together. As a result : connecting the parts ; Ain't so/is not : academic writing doesn't always mean setting aside your own voice ; But don't get me wrong : the art of metacommentary ; He [says] contends : using the templates to revise -- Part 4. In specific academic contexts. I take your point : entering class discussions ; IMHO : is digital communication good or bad-or both? ; What's motivating this writer? : reading for the conversation ; On closer examination : entering conversations about literature ; The data suggest : writing in the sciences ; Analyze this : writing in the social sciences -- Readings. Don't blame the eater / David Zinczenko ; Hidden intellectualism / Gerald Graff ; Nuclear waste / Richard A. Muller ; The (futile) pursuit of the American dream / Barbara Ehrenreich ; Everything that rises must converge / Flannery O'Connor.
