Remembering Donald Graves

Donald Graves, who passed away this week, was the shining light of a rethinking of how to teach writing to children. His seminal book, Writing: Teachers & Children at Work, was highly important for me and many others.  I loved going to hear him speak at conventions and appreciated the way he was continually thinking and writing about writing, learning, creativity, and thinking.  We have lost a remarkable and very important voice in American education.
