Literacy Support: Read 180

  • We continue to use the research-based Read 180 program to develop student reading fluency and comprehension, in addition to reinforcing good writing mechanics and strategies. Students practice a variety of proven strategies to increase reading comprehension and fluency. The Read 180 program also includes computer-assisted learning to provide further opportunities for student practice and skill development in reading.
