To the Editor:

I've been reading Education Week for more than 20 years, and your article "One Class Takes On the Standards" (June 5, 2013) is a well-told story of real people in a real-life predicament. The portraits and mini-bios made it intimate, and there was a good layout. Reading about how teacher Dowan McNair-Lee finds being instructed in how to instruct about tropes, figures of speech, allusions, similes, and so on reminds me again of Henry Reed's poem "Naming of Parts."

It's the most engaging read I've ever had in your rag. Thanks.
