HMH: Into Reading

  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) – Delaware Department of Education  


At Kings Highway Academy, we know that becoming independent readers and writers is a process.


Our goal is to make our students responsible for their learning and to understand the ways that good readers read and effective writers write.


Staff Development

We have started HMH: Into Reading this year.

HMH staff Developers visit our school throughout the year to work directly with teachers and students in order to model effective methods of teaching.

Teachers also attend staff development seminars on planning, instruction and small group work and return to share their learning with colleagues.

Lead teachers serve as mentors and the entire staff are always available and willing to support each other's success and growth.

Response to Intervention

RTI (Response to Intervention)

At Kings Highway Academy, we serve our children at risk for academic difficulties through Response to Intervention.  The children receive extra help in their classroom through Tier 1 and Tier 2 interventions. If necessary children are also pulled out for instruction in a small group setting for Tier 3 intervention.


RTI Programs

Fountas and Pinnel Leveled Literacy Intervention:

The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention is a powerful, short-term intervention, that provides daily, intensive, small-group instruction, which supplements classroom literacy teaching. LLI turns struggling readers into successful readers with engaging leveled books and fast-paced, systematically designed lessons.
