Interview with Ralph Fletcher

May 17th, 2010

“I want to hear laughter. Humor is essential! I want to see writing displayed on the walls that reflects what kids do at that age. Instead of typing up correct (standard) first grade stories, put stories on the walls written in their own handwriting, in their own zany spellings.”

Patrick Allen recently interviewed Ralph Fletcher on his blog,¬†All-en-A Day’s Work. The two discuss Ralph’s latest book, Pyrotechnics on the Page, what makes for playful writing, and how to promote playful language in the classroom.¬†Patrick is the author of Conferring: The Keystone of Reader’s Workshop.
