READ 180 Classroom
A Classroom Designed for Engagement
When students enter the READ 180 classroom, they should immediately see that something is different. There is a section for the whole class to sit together, or in a small group for instruction with their teacher. There is a section with computers, where students will work on the READ 180 Software. And finally students will also notice a library area with a comfortable place to sit and read silently.

READ 180 Instructional Model
A proven model for instruction
A READ 180 session begins with the whole class working together with the teacher. Then, the class breaks up into small groups. Each group takes a turn reading independently, working independently on computers and working together in teacher-led small groups. At the end of the session, the whole class comes together again, with the teacher, to wrap up the day.

The teacher works with the whole class on reading skills and strategies, vocabulary, writing, and grammar.
Students work independently on computers. The software adapts to each student’s level and needs, as it gives students practice in reading, spelling, vocabulary, and writing.
The teacher works closely with small groups of students to meet their individual needs. Small group work helps students build academic skills and build relationships with their teacher as she gets to know each student and his or her strengths and learning style.
Modeled and Independent Reading
Students go to a quiet, comfortable corner of the classroom and read silently from the high-interest books or online articles of their choice, written at their reading levels.
Whole Group Wrap-Up
At the end of each class period, the whole class comes together again with the teacher. Students have the opportunity to share what they have learned.
