Chapter 2 They Say I Say summary

In Chapter two of "They Say, I Say" the authors urge writers to put their self in the shoes of whatever person they are summarazing. They insist that an overly biased introduction takes away from the effectiveness of a summary. Still, they admit that a writer should not totally abandon their own views. The task of knowing what idea one is writing for must always be kept in mind, even when trying to summarize the words of someone else. The authors also stress the importance of using signal verbs to introduce a summary. The authorsn use phrases such as "she demonstrates", "he admits", and "in fact" to demonstrate effective signal verb examples.
