READ 180
READ 180 is a reading intervention program for below grade level and struggling readers. The program combines the use of three types of reading: software, a high-interest lexile-leveled library of paperbacks and audio books, and small group lessons. Students rotate through the three stations and have whole group instruction every day.

 

As part of a district initiative to increase students reading ability, READ 180 was implemented in the middle schools and high schools. Each school received sixty READ 180 and SRI licenses, five copies each of forty paperbacks that are separated into four lexile levels, four copies each of twelve audiobooks, and a teacher resource kit.

This year several school sites have been upgraded to Read 180 Next Generation materials.  Continue to check the links on the right side of this page for updated information.
