The READ 180 Instructional Model
A PROVEN MODEL FOR INSTRUCTION, typical 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.
WHOLE-GROUP INSTRUCTION: The teacher works with the whole class on reading skills and strategies, vocabulary, writing, and grammar.
SMALL-GROUP LEARNING: In this small-group setting, students receive targeted, data-driven instruction unique to their individual needs while building relationships with their teachers.
INDEPENDENT READING: Students go to a quiet, comfortable corner of the classroom and read silently. They have their choice of reading paperbacks or listening to an audiobook.
WHOLE-GROUP LEARNING: Students reconvene at the end of class for a Whole-Group Wrap Up. During this part, students reinforce what they learned during whole-group instruction and the three stations.
