A workshop of special interest to us at the Northern Regional Conference in March was presented by Dr. Nancy Boyles on Integrating the Comprehension Strategies and Fluency Instruction with Teaching Poetry. Our Cornerstone teachers had already planned a genre study on poetry for the month of April, and they had done some work with using poetry for comprehension strategies. Teaching fluency with poetry was just where we needed to go next.
Two weeks after the Conference, we held an after-school workshop for Cornerstone staff at Marin. Dr. Boyles, who is our Literacy Fellow, came to present a demonstration lesson using our own students.

However, Dr. Nancy Boyles warns that "The implementation of 'close reading' as it is defined by CCSS will be problematic for ELLs because of its move away from pre-reading support for students. While I generally agree with this change of focus (expecting students to retrieve meaning from the text rather than the teacher), this is not necessarily a good fit for ELLs who need vocabulary knowledge and may need additional prior knowledge established in order to adequately construct basic meaning from a text. This, I think, will require good collaboration between the ELL teacher and classroom teacher to address these needs appropriately."
According to Boyles, there are four essential components that teachers and administrators need to understand in order to successfully implement the Common Core standards.
Dr. Nancy Boyles is currently an associate professor and the graduate reading program coordinator at Southern Connecticut State University, where she teaches courses in developmental reading, writing instruction, and the administration and supervision of school literacy programs. Previously, she spent 25 years as a classroom teacher at various elementary grade levels. She was named Teacher of the Year in her district and was a semi-finalist for Connecticut Teacher of the Year. She received her doctorate in reading and language from Boston University.
