Mrs. Logan's Read 180


Dear Caregiver, 
I am excited to announce that our school is implementing READ 180 Universal, an innovative blended learning solution built to ensure all readers are on a track to college, career, and beyond. After careful consideration, your child has been selected to participate in the program in order to support his or her instructional needs.

 READ 180 is a research-based program with proven results in raising student reading achievement. READ 180 uses cutting-edge technology to deliver individualized reading instruction for each student, provide valuable practice with essential reading skills and strategies, and motivate students to become confident and lifelong readers. 
In our READ 180 class, your child, two para educators, and I will work together to: 
Bring his or her reading proficiency up to grade level. 
 Apply reading and writing strategies to other subjects such as social studies, science, and math.
 Develop multi-paragraph writing skills.
 Build knowledge and develop essential literacy skills for college and career readiness. 
 Develop a deep level of confidence in themselves and their reading abilities READ 180 Universal will challenge your child to work hard, and by doing so, he or she can attain reading success. 
Offer encouragement and provide support at home by visiting the library, setting aside reading time, and discussing the books your child reads. 

Thank you in advance for helping us achieve our goals for your student. Together we will support your reader on the path to language, literacy, and learning!

Week of September 18, 2017

What's happening this week:

This will be our first week for most students entering Read 180 (R180). I'm excited to meet everyone and to introduce the new curriculum!  We will be working as a Whole Group for the next ten days or so before starting our rotation schedule. We will be learning the rotation schedule and how to maneuver around online in R180. Students will be able to make decisions about what they read for some of the assignments. I believe this will work to their advantage as they get to choose topics they are interested in. 

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have.

Looking forward to a great week!




I will be sending a homework assignment with your student for you to complete. I look forward to reading your feedback.
