THE STUDENT APPLICATION

The Student Application is the software component of READ 180. Students can choose from a menu of 25 high-interest segments on varying topics including civil rights, breakdancing, and historical figures like Rachel Carson and Nelson Mandela. Each segment begins with an Anchor Video to engage student interest, build background knowledge, and help students form mental images of the subjects they’ll be reading about. After watching the Anchor Video, students read passages based on the video content that are geared to their individual reading levels. They continue working with the passages by answering questions using comprehension strategies, building vocabulary and spelling skills using words from the text, and responding to writing prompts based on the passages and video. As students work in the Student Application, the software tracks their progress, reports data to their teacher, and customizes instruction to meet their needs.

WHOLE- AND SMALL-GROUP INSTRUCTION

 

During READ 180 Whole- and Small-group Learning, teachers provide direct instruction using the ReaL Book, a work text that includes six high-interest Workshops with reading selections about topics such as the Bill of Rights, D-Day, and space exploration.

 

Every Workshop also includes systematic instruction in academic vocabulary and language, close reading, and academic writing and research. After beginning the session with the whole class, students work independently on three rotations: the Student Application, Small-Group Learning, and Independent Reading.

SMALL-GROUP LEARNING

In this rotation, students work with their teachers in their ReaL Books to deeply analyze texts, master new vocabulary, and demonstrate writing knowledge.

INDEPENDENT READING

During Independent Reading, students can choose a grade-appropriate text from the Independent Reading library, which includes 30 paperbacks, 46 eBooks, 5 audiobooks, and 46 nonfiction articles called eReads. All digital texts have supportive features, such as audio, highlighting, and a clickable glossary, to help students as they read independently.
