Read 180 Reading Lab

Welcome to New Students

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 enabling 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. 

Reading Counts

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

Reading Tips

  • If you are reading non-fiction text, make sure you are reading for details.  Many test questions will come from these details.
  • Don't let a missing reading log bring down your grade.  Keep track of your reading at home and at school.
  • Use the Reading Strategies we are learning as you do your homework for other classes.
  • Don't procrastinate!  Remember you have to have completed at least seven (7) quizzes by the end of the quarter.  Anything over seven means more prizes for you!


Every student should be reading 20-30 minutes each night and filling out their log twice a day.  Once in class and once at home.

Go Team!!! 


Our Goal is for every student to pass ten (10) Reading Counts Quizzes each quarter.
