"Read to Succeed"
For those of you who are new students joining us, I am excited to introduce you to our program. Our goal in READ 180/Reading Lab is to help students improve their reading skills, which will also help students improve in other subject areas as well. Read 180 includes several types of instruction which enable us to focus on individual reading deficiencies and needs. These include whole group instruction, small group instruction, instructional reading software, and independent reading. We will also focus on several learning and reading strategies to help students be successful.
Homework is only assigned in Read 180 to reinforce the lesson taught that day in class and it is not assigned everyday. However, students will be required to read every night, including weekends. They will log their progress on their reading log and this will be part of their grade.
The reading will be in conjunction with books assigned by their Language Arts teacher, so students should not be overwhelmed. In fact, they can count the reading for both classes, as long as they have permission from the Language Arts teacher. However, it is imperative that students read for at least 30 minutes each night. When a book is completed, students will take a Reading Counts quiz for a grade
