The BFAST (BeFore & After School Tutoring) Program will provide students from Benjamin Franklin Middle School in grades 5 through 8 with morning and afternoon instructional support in Mathematics, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Robotics. While the emphasis in instructional support will focus on Mathematics and Language Arts, the other areas of instruction will be taught to provide the same level of support for students in Math and Language Arts. Teachers will work in small instructional groups with students to assist in recognized “points of confusion (POC).”
In addition to small group instruction, students will have access computer-based programs to support their targeted area. Homework assistance to students enrolled will also be available. The program will begin early January and immediate begin working toward building test taking skills/strategies in targeted NJSLA areas.
