"Writing Without Pencils"


Writing Without Pencils is a provocative educational concept—that children can write before they can read.  


In 2009, kindergarten teachers asked Paul for writing lessons tailored to five-year-olds. From that request came Writing Without Pencils, an ongoing, teacher-focused project that includes collaborations, school residencies, publications, and teacher workshops, including two presentations at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. 


In 2010 I felt that I should present a definition of the new Writing Without Pencils initiative—a case statement.  With funding from a donor and with the video skills of Stuart Hirotsu (Issei Productions), we created this brief video.  The students are the stars, of course.


To get involved, contact Paul. To learn more click on the video below.
