  • Course Description

    The Read 180 and Learning Strategies Classroom follows a specific format of Whole Group, and 3 Rotations daily.  During the 3 Rotations, the students will have 15- 20 minutes in each setting.  They will have Small Group with me to work on specific skills,  Independent Reading with books on their lexile level or Math activities, and Instructional Software with programs designed for their skill level.

    The students will be required to work through the Software modules, complete Reading Counts Quizzes based on their lexile leveled books, and take Unit Tests assessing their skills and progress within the program.

    The Goal of Read 180 is to increase independent reading fluency and comprehension skills, and to test out of the program.
