Dear Alumnae, Parcms and Frle-nds of Saint Josepb Academy, Throughout this academic yeat, we have been focusing on one of rhe aspens or rhe charism, or spiriTUality, of the Congregation of Saint. Joseph. Our theme is "Serving [he Dear Neighbor."\Y/e serve our dear neighbor as part of our mission of unity - to bring everyone we Ineet inro union with God, one anOther aDd all creatioll. Our young ,vo.men are among rhe stlldem leaders in the group called Catholic Srudenrs for Peace and Justice. They were awarded a grant 10 host a rundraising evem Jar the victims of violence in Darfur. Students rram 12 Carbolic high schools [h roughotH the diocese were iLl art<::ndance.

The evening "vas ;·[Iot offlln, but more importantly, it raised over $10,000 for the less fortunate people in Africa and those in need right here in Cleveland. The idea of "serving th dear neighbor" \,vas cle<uly evident on March /'11, wllen Mother Antonia visired the Academy (see article page 1).1 am always so proud of OUJ smdents when visiwr' are with LIS. 'y'ou 'ould have heard a pin drop during Mother's remarks. Her personal witness of "serving the de<u' neighbor" ill the prisons of Mexico tollched the girls immensely. As we cominlle to prepare Oll!' srudents ac.., lemil'aJly to be suce ssful in rhe 21 Sl century glohal society, we also are preparing them [0 become compassionate leaders for the world. We a~re so blessed to have the teachings of rhe Congregation or Sai nr Joseph to gllide LIS all. 2lursurn Corda,

Her work has been honored by Pope John Panl II and presidents of both Mexico and rhe Uni,ed Srates. Morher Antonia founded rhe order of the Eudist Servants of the Eleventh Hour, which has attracred scores of people EO her mission work. Many of them are older women, some widowed or divorced, who find Moth~r Antonia's missiou a way to serve in rhe later years of their lives.

"This was an unbelievable experience. I felt something special when Mother Antoma embraced me when we were introdllced. She certainly is a blessed woman."

H

oW often do you get to meet a personal hero? Laura Dunson ]'09 not only mer her personal hero, Mother Antonia, bur inrroduced her to rhe Saint Joseph Academy commnnity during her recenr visi r. Mother Antonia was invired ro Cleveland by Fr. Jim O'DonneJl and Sr. Maggie Walsh Conrad of rhe Little Brothers and Sisters of the Eucharist. She came to share her message of faith and hope at Saint Joseph Academy and at several orher events in the greater Cleveland community. Laura firsr became aware of Mother Antonia and her work in the Mexican prisons while working on an assignment for Mrs. Michelle Kelly-Flanagan's English class. Laura was reading The P,-ison AngeL, a biography of Mother Anronia by Cleveland native Mary Jordan, a 1979 graduare of Sainr Joseph Academy, and her husband, Kevin Sullivan, Pulitzet-ptize winning journalists for The Washington Post.

Through their hook, Laura came to know Mother Antonia's life and her rhirty years of work in Mesa prison in Mexico. Morher Antonia lives with rhe women of the prison under extremely hazardous and unsanitary conditions. Some of the Mesa prisioners are serving semences for offenses as minor as stealing food for rheir families. Morher Antonia was born and raised in Beverly Hills. She gave up a life of grear privilege as a California honsewife and mother ro move inro a prison cell where she lives in the same condirions as the men and women she serves. Now 81, she has hecome a beloved figure in the prison, supplying food, medicine, blankets and hope for If II those who have little. She has paid for new reeth for thousands of inmates and plasric surgery ro correct facial SClI's and defotmities for hundreds more.

Laura's introducrion was very moving and personal, and Mother Antonia's stories of the men and women in Mesa and her message of forgiveness seemed to resonare wirh the students and guests who @led the Academy Center. Laura remarked, "This was an unbeliev足 able experience. I felt something special when Mother Antonia embraced me when we were introduced. She certainly is a blessed woman."

Saint Joseph Academy UPDATE


••

The L·terac~ nltlatlve at Sai Jose Ac demy (First in a Series) Saint Joseph Academy launched its Literacy Initiative in the fall of 2007. This initiative has four parts: reading, writing, information, and communication literacy. To become strong contributors to our global society, students must have these skills. Typically, schools focus on reading only in the elementary years; writing only for academia (e.g. research papers instead of technical writing); information literacy only with emphasis on using journals and other traditional forms of media for information; and communication literacy only within pubic speaking classes. At Saint Joseph Academy, we believe all important 21 st century skills must be emphasized in the high schoo! curriculum. We have offered (and will continue to offer) in-depth professional development in these areas for the faculty, creating professional learning communities where faculty members discuss these areas and seek to meet the needs of the students in our school. We have embedded these four pillars of reading, writing, information, and communication literacy across the curriculum in all of our grades. This on-going emphasis will be the foundation for all curricular work at SJA for years to come. This article is the first in a series about this initiative and provides an overview of our focus on reading. High school students need reading instruction There exisrs much research thar suppons rhe idea char as scudenrs move on (Q high school and must engage wich subStantially more difficult texts, cheyare nor equipped with the skills (Q snccessfuJly access meaning. Furthermore, high school teachers do nor typically have reading instruction included as a pan of their education curriculum. AB a result, high school students do not develop the important 21st centmy skill of critical reading at a supetior level. At Saint Joseph Academy, we are teaching our smdents techniques to urilize (Q ger "unstnck" when they encounter difficulr rext and how good readers consrruct deep undersranding when they read. By acrively reaching good reading strategies, we can avoid some of the common pitfalls that show up in high

school. For example, teachers often summarize assigned readings and share rheir own conclusions wirh the srudents. The students learn rhat they do nor have (Q work (Q undersrand rhe texr and insread just focns on remembering the reachers' intetpretarions ro parrot back on a test. Many students have also mastered rhe art of "fal\.e reading," where rhey nse orher means ro find summa­ ries of books and information thar has been assigned to rhem. Teachers can assume rhat if stUdents can read words aloud from a rext, then those students undersrand them. In fact, many students have excellent decoding skills but are at the same rime lacking in comprehension skills. One final pitfall is a general assumption rhar aJl types of prose require the same reading strategies. In facr, different strategies are required for different genres. At SJA, we are actively addressing all of these and others to help remove student

barriers ro reading and (Q help students achieve their porencial First, much evidence has been cired regarding the rewards of aCtively teaching literacy skills in the lasr decade. Reading proficiency is a key (Q success in both higher educarion and in the workplace. Technical literacy is increasingly important as employees must read, garher, and analyze information from many sources to solve problems and meet customer needs. In fact, entry-level jobs today often have higher reading requiremencs rhan many of the more advanced positions in rhe same field. I Second, advances in technology have added more pressute to develop reading skills. Former U.S. Secrerary of Education Richard Riley said: "In some cases, e-mail and the Incernet have actually allowed us to substirute reading and writing for the spoken word.


1

In a rapidly changing workplace, reading skills cominue to bc importanl for adults. And lifelong learning - meaning lifelong reading - is more crucial than ever as workers move from one job to the nexr."2 Third, there is a direct correJarion becween education level, literacy level, jobs people qualify for, and the pay they receive. It is imperative that SJA srudents leave the school with strong reading skills. Wllat is SJA doing to increase

reading literacy? To increase student reading literacy, we have taken a mulri-faceted approach. FirSI, we have simply added a dedicared drop­ evcrything-and-read time every Weduesday. The entire school building, from the main office personnel to che advancemenr directors, will stop all they are doing, and read a book. They often go into the classrooms and join rhe srudents and teachers during this time. We hope ro reinforce the concept that reading is a skill that is also pleasurable and should be a part of one's life. Second, we have added a book to every class beyond the regular texts. For example, the students are teading Nickel and Dimed, On Not Getting by in America by Barbara Ehrenreich in algebra classes; How Jane Won by Dr. Sylvia B. Rimm in the Mictosoft Office classes; The Fire in the Turtle House by Osha Gray Davidson in honors biology classes. Reading helps the smdents to make connections becween their courses and the world at large. Ultimately, we wanr our srudenrs to read the equivalem of25 books per year across the curriculum. Third, the teachers are modeling good reading strategies, some of which include: using existing knowledge to mal{e sense of new infotmation; asking questions abom the text before, during and after reading; drawing inferences from the text; moniror­ ing their comprehension; using "fix-up"

strategies when meaning bteaks down; determining what is important; synthesizing information to create new thinking; and crearing sensory images to connect to meaning. 3 These srrategies will enhance learning in all classes. Finally, we are increasing the rigor of our English curriculum. By making all courses rigorous, studies have shown that students score significantly higher on standardized tests than they did in the former basic or general classes. In fact, enrolling students in higher-level language ans classes is the one action that schools can rake that is likely to have the greatest impacr on improving li[etacy skills} SJA is committed ro providing the best p[eparation for our young women for rhe 21st century. Reading literacy is a major key to rheir future success. Studenrs must know that reading is thinking and it is a skill that can he developed throughout their lives. By providing them wiEh a reading tool-kit, we beliclre om students will be able to continue in their reading growth throughout rheir lives. To conclude, Cris Tovani, a readiug comprehension expert, consultant, and professor nores: "High school literacy instruction is ar a crossroads. Tomorrow's citizens face grearer reading demands rhan ever before. The written word is no longer restricted to paper form. Children of all ages are being bombarded with information from rhe Internet and other electronic forms of ptinr. Tbe "EO)-generation needs to comprehend more than ever before. Readers of romorrow must do more than memorize words. They must be prepared to analyze, validate, and ask rhe next logical question. They have ro know how to rhink. "5 Saint Joseph Academy is on the cutting edge of studem literacy developmenr. In the next issue of UPDATE, auother article will cominue with a focus on writing literacy.

Recycling of cans and plastic is an everyday occurrence wirh barrels dotting all floors of rhe school. The Recycling Team does a weekly collection of paper and recyclables from classtooms and offices around the school. Many of our puhlica­ rions are being printed on eco-friendly

paper. And to celebrate Earch Day this year, the ECOS (Environmental Concerns of Students) organization planned a "Study Up/Power Down Day" to conserve elecaicity. Science teacher and ECOS moderaror Nora Kelly]'01 said, "These girls are really interested. Ie is pan of the charism of the Congtegation who for many years have been a ptoactive force in environ­ mental causes. The girls just dtaw their momenrum from rhe Sisters."

The World Wide Web can expose people to a world of infonnation and can be a tremendous resource for researching future careers, bnt for all the information it provides it cannot take the place of the one-on-one personal perspective provided by a three-day professional shadowing experience. By experiencing a workplace first-hand, students can learn a great deal more about a career than they can through just pure research. It call reveal to the students whether they prefer the low-stress environment of a design finn or the conservative natilre of the wood paneled corridors of a law finn. Would they prefer to wear a suit to work each day or dress casually each day? Job shadowing is designed to increase career awareness, help model student behavior through examples, and reinforce in the student the link between classroom learning and work requirements. This year Saint Joseph Academy's Junior Professional Shadowing Project took place from Wednesday; February 13th, through Friday; February 15th. Job shadowing is a work experience option where students leam about a job by walking through the workday as a shadow of a professional in partirular industries. Students witness first-hand the work environment, employ­ ability and occupational skills in practice and the value of professional trainiug and potential career options. We thank all of our shadowing hosts and their companies for their support of this vital program for our students. Student: Kolyssha Swanson ]'09 Sponsor: Dr. Natalie Belle, MD, Tri-C Western Campus "Exploring the medical field through the shadowing -program show'ed me that it is something I teally want to do. I was able CO do hands-on activities and really get a floel of what I want to do with my future. I teally liked the operating room.
