Nancy Louth, literary support specialist at Cloonan Middle School, led a group of adults through a lesson in reading comprehension. She handed out various texts, including an excerpt from John Lewis' memoir, "Walking with the Wind," and two poems.
The adults were instructed to read the selections and to make note of the tone and literary devices the author used to convey a message. In some texts, words were bold and underlined and a definition was provided because the word's meaning was not evident in the context of the paragraph. A personification of clouds was also underlined, and Louth explained grammar lessons were imbedded in the reading lessons.
In plain language, usage and grammar are part of the discussion of the whole work.
In the course of the session, Louth and other educators explained how parents can help their students.
Louth explained a key concept behind Common Core is centered on nonfiction and information texts. She recommended reading and discussing articles from news magazines or newspapers. She also recommended reading biographies and memoirs of people kids are interested in.
For a long time, schools have been hearing from college administrators and business leaders that the students graduating high schools aren't ready for college or the workplace. The new curriculum is designed to address that concern.
"We're trying to get caught up," Louth said.

"Too many times February (Black History Month) becomes Martin Luther King month and the students don't learn too much about other African-Americans who made history, like Madam C.J. Walker, Langston Hughes, Adam Clayton Powell," said Nancy Louth, a reading teacher at the school who taught students about the Harlem Renaissance.
"Ella Fitzgerald got on this stage to dance and decided the other dancers who went before her were much better than her, so she decided to sing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow,' " said Louth, who made her debut by singing the song.

Of particular note was the rendition of "Scofield State of Mind" by teacher Nancy Louth, accompanied by Al Forsyth.
Now we are wondering when Broadway will claim Ms. Louth.
