Ralph Fletcher comments on boy writing

April 9th, 2009

For the past several weeks we have been collecting some great samples of classic boy writing from teachers across the country. We have received poems, comic strips and comic books, short stories, plays, and an eight-chapter novella. In the end Ralph Fletcher, author of Boy Writers: Reclaiming Their Voices, selected 12 submissions and wrote comments about the pieces. You can read his comments — and read the student’s work — by clicking on the images below.

You can view all of the submission on our Ning group. (You will have to sign up for an account if you don’t have one yet.)
