Dude, Listen to This! (Video)

Engaging Boy Writers

In his groundbreaking book, Boy Writers: Reclaiming Their Voices, Ralph Fletcher took an expedition into the murky and sometimes dangerous world of boys and writing. He examined what inspires them and what shuts them down, and delved into ways teachers can do a better job of nurturing boys' wonderfully quirky contributions. Ralph's new video, "Dude, Listen to This!", explores the issue face to face as he meets with a group of boys who voluntarily give up recess time each week to meet and talk about their writing. "Dude," you may ask, "how does that happen?"
