Course Description

Read 180 is a research-based reading intervention program published by Scholastic. Read 180 software provides struggling readers with intensive, differentiated skills practice, and instruction that:

  • collects data to continually adjust instruction to meet each student's needs
  • offers continuous support and immediate feedback
  • is tremendously engaging and motivating with over 100 videos from grade-level science, math, history, and social studies content areas
  • builds phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension

Parent Note

The single most effective tool you can implement at home to help your child increase his or her reading ability is to read every day for at least 20 minutes or more. Please try to have a collection of materials that the child will find interesting: books, magazines, newspapers, and computer activities.

Conference time

On a normal daily schedule, my conference time is from 1:45-2:30. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if I can help in any way.
