Following the success of the 2001 film, I Am a Writer: The Writing Workshop, the Noyce Foundation and First Pictures collaborated on an extended version of the project. The new film, released in 2003, shared the orignial film's title but offered nine individual modules that explored every facet of the Writing Workshop project. The greatly expanded length (210 minutes) allows each element of the program to be explored in greater depth.
While intended as a professional development tool for teachers, principals and other school administrators involved in Noyce's Every Child and Read and Writer Initiative, this film will provide interested K-6 teachers many of the tools needed to deploy such a program in their own classrooms.
The program topics are:
Produced, directed and edited by Stephen Lee
Associate Producer and Editor Stephen Kozlowski
Associate Producer Susan Czark
Camera and lighting by Rico Corona and David Corona
Field sound by Whitney Alves and Gretchen Trapp
Music by Sean Mendelson
Additional Music by Christopher Lee
