Sixth- and seventh-grade students from Copiague Middle School are getting the extra resources they need to succeed in the upcoming school year thanks to a reading intervention program offered this summer at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School.

Sixteen students are participating in the four-week program, which meets from 8 a.m. to noon in small groups. The program addresses all components of the district’s reading and writing curriculum. Students work on skills such as leveled literacy instruction, short reading and responsive writing, and reading and interpreting different types of texts. 

There’s also an online vocabulary portion of the curriculum, in addition to current events discussions and question-and-answer sessions to work on retention and recognition.
