Grades 6-8

ELA ASAP is an opportunity for students to improve reading comprehension and fluency in a supportive environment.  This program aims to successfully guide students toward accurate, articulate responses to text and media.  As an English Language Arts interventionist, Mr. Fortino will be providing in-class support for students who would benefit from differentiated, small group reading and writing instruction.  
Wilson Just Words Program 
As an extension of available intervention plans provided by ASAP, students may qualify for the Just Words program.  For students who have gaps in phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, and basic word study, Just Words provides concentrated, systematic support for elementary and middle school students.   Just Words aims to directly and explicitly teach the decoding of the English language and solidify spelling automaticity.     
Wilson Reading System
Another piece of programming offered through ASAP is intensive phonics instruction.  Students qualify if they display substantial deficits in phonics and fluency.  This program takes a twelve step, multi-sensory approach to direct phonics instruction as detailed by the Wilson Academy.
