I am a Pencil

Terrific interview on NPR, September 14 with Sam Swope author of I am a Pencil. If you are a teacher or care about student writing, please take a moment and listen to the interview.

NPR's Melissa Block talks with Sam Swope, author of I Am a Pencil, a book based on his work with students from 21 countries on creative writing projects. What started out as a 10-day writing workshop with third graders in Queens turned into a three-year project. He tells stories of the imaginative ways they explore their dreams and problems through writing. Their greatest adventure in writing was spending time in Central Park experiencing nature for the first time.
