They Say I Say

They Say I Say

They Say I Say is a collection of notes bridging the gap between readers and writers. In chapter fourteen we talk about what is motivating the writer, what is he or she trying to portray to the reader and for many years we have tried to understand these two lessons through the discussion of assigned reading. Studies show that these assigned readings paired along with a class discussion always results in a struggle for the students and the teachers. The students don’t want to participate because they feel the material is too difficult  and they are trying to find an answer when reading so no one participates. And the teachers push the work harder to get answers out of the students and both ends get frustrated in the end. When deciphering the conversation, instead of trying to figure out what the author is saying you need to figure out what are the views of the author and what is argument is against what “they” are saying. Readers need to be active and always alert when analyzing a piece of literature. As readers we need to look for changes in the authors tone or voice because then that can be a shift in the story. We also need to understand the differences between “they say” and “I say” because we may think we have an understanding of it but really our views are switched
