About the Author

Ralph Fletcher received his BA from Dartmouth College and his master's from Columbia University. A former member of the Teachers College Writing Project, he currently works as a consultant. The author of numerous books, he also presents at conferences in the United States and around the world


"Although classroom teachers should find Fletcher's advice especially thought-provoking and useful, Boy Writers is written for a broader audience, including parents, teacher educators, literacy advocates and perhaps even policy makers and boys themselves." - Education Review

"A good read and well worth the time and money. Boy Writers would be good for teachers looking for a staff development study around gender-specific teaching strategies or writing improvement." - Teacher Learners Network

"Fletcher's book will surely keep me returning to his ideas time and time again. This book must be read by teachers (both male and female) in order to reach our boy writers." -
