I want to explain a little about how the Read 180 program works. The class is about 90 minutes long and the students rotate through four stations; whole group , small group, independent reading, and topic software.
This is the independent read area where students read from books in their lexile range and can also listen to audio books. They take quizzes after reading from the Reading Counts portion of the software.
This is the dashboard students first see when they log onto their Scholastic Read 180 site. It tracks their progress on the software and they earn awards all along the way.
This shows a sample video from one of the topics in the reading zone. All reading stories begin with an interesting video and then go onto a short story with questions following.
This is the book (sideways) we use that incorporates science, social studies, literature and life skills topics within the workshops. Each workshop has a writing component as well as 21st century skills. Our first workshop is on the New Americans, with an informational paragraph we will be doing on how immigration has impacted our community.
