Read 180 is a 50 minute class that is predominately comprehension based. Our students will breaking apart the components that build an article, short story, poem and so on. Students will also be explicitly taught to organize their thoughts and construct them into a standards based essay.
Students will be assigned homework on a monthly basis. Together in class we will create a student profile on the website NoRedInk. Students will be assigned 30-45 minutes of work at the beginning of the month, that they will be expected to complete within that month's time. I will check the data at the end of the month and grade them accordingly.
All homework I assign will be posted on this website so be sure to check it regularly.
I also highly encourage reading a book as a family at home. Encourage them to read out loud and find some aspect to praise them on. A little praise goes a long way!
