Ralph Fletcher is bringing joy back to writing

Nothing helps writers grow like practice. But not just any kind of practice will do. You've got to bring the joy! In Joy Write, beloved writer and teacher Ralph Fletcher shows you how.

How do writers really grow?

A writer needs wide latitude so she can bring all her intelligence to the task, Ralph observes. Assigning a particular format-a hamburger essay, for instance-would curtail this play, if not eliminate it entirely. That's why, instead of teacher-driven assignments, Joy Write shares the whys and the how of giving students time and autonomy for the playful, low-stakes writing that leads to surprising, high-level growth.

Five ideas for authentic, choice-driven writing

First Ralph makes the case for carving out classroom time for low-stakes writing, despite pressure to focus on persuasive essays and test prep. Then he shares five big ideas for choice-driven, authentic, informal writing-deeply engaging work that kids want to do. He also provides numerous suggestions for helping students build and flex their writing muscles, increase their stamina, and develop passion for expressing themselves with the written word.

We don't teach students to write, Ralph Fletcher advises, so much as create a safe space where they can teach themselves by doing. Trust Ralph and find out how to bring the joy to your writers.
