READ 180 is a systematic program of reading intervention which incorporates several crucial elements. First, there is a scientific research base for the READ 180 software. The research, which began in the 1990′s, uses student performance data to individualize, adjust, and differentiate the path of reading instruction. After more than 10 years of implementation in schools, READ 180 has brought significant gains in reading proficiency for students who have not historically experienced success in reading. READ 180 also give you the power to track and analyze student performance continuously. A variety of instruments embedded in the program enable teacher to identify students’ most urgent needs and adjust instruction accordingly. The READ 180 software continually adjusts the level of instruction based on student performance, and actionable reports and periodic checkpoints alert teachers to students’ needs and direct them to resources for individualizing instruction. READ 180 is a teaching system that equips and trains educators to deliver effective reading, writing, and vocabulary instruction to struggling students through direct instruction as well as instructional software. Teachers are provided comprehensive implementation training as well as follow-up coaching to assist them with effective implementation.
