Now Playing: “Dude, Listen to This!”

September 17th, 2008

Spending time with boys in their writing club, I was reminded again that boys like to write…we think of it as something that maybe boys would choose not to do, but here are boys who give up their recess once a week to get together and write.

In his new DVD, “Dude, Listen to This!” Ralph Fletcher thoughtfully examines the exuberance, sly humor, and surprising sensitivity of boy writers. Watch this clip as Ralph works with a group of fourth-grade boys who meet weekly with Jennifer Allen, literacy specialist and author of Becoming a Literacy Leader. Ralph reflects on how the writing club encourages writing for pleasure and helps boys support each other as writers.
