• Welcome to READ180!

    READ180 online zoom classes will start the week of August 17th.  Students will see a READ180 course within their canvas classes.  Students will log in every day the week of August 17th for whole group instruction.  Starting the week of August 24th students will be given their rotation schedule and log into small group two times per week, and complete their READ180 software three times per week on the days they don’t have small group zoom meetings. 

    Rotations: Using the READ180 instructional materials, students are provided systematic instruction in reading, writing, and vocabulary. Using proven strategies, students will rotate through the following formats:

    • READ 180 Software - Students will use the READ 180 Software independently, providing them with an intensive, individualized skills practice.  Students will be expected to work on the software 3 days per week for at least 20 minutes, on the days they aren’t receiving small group instruction.
