Hello, my name is Ms. Burgess!
Welcome to READ 180
Course Description: The focus of READ 180 is to enhance students' comprehension levels. The class is offered to seventh, eighth, and ninth graders. The program focuses on achieving these goals by getting students involved more frequently and with analyzing what they read. Students participate in the READ 180 Next Generation software where they work on reading fluently by recording themselves reading, on word recognition, on spelling, and on writing. Aside from actively using the software in class, students remain engaged by taking part in whole-group and small-group instruction where they use a textbook known as the rBook, which teaches them skills and techniques for improving comprehension. The program does not stop there! Lastly, students get to find out their reading levels and get to read paperback or audio books on their designated reading levels. If students diligently follow the rotations established with READ 180, they will achieve success with reading and will continue to accomplish goals in their lives.
Remember that you can accomplish any task as long as you set your mind to it and try your best.
