READ180 Award Jowah

Jowah, 4th Grade

Lexile® score increased by 301 in half a year

Jowah did not regularly attend school before third grade. When he began school, he hadn’t yet learned letters and sounds, but when his third-grade teacher asked him his goals, he had an important one: “I just want to read!” Starting his fourth-grade year with System 44 and then progressing to READ 180, Jowah began to build confidence and made tremendous progress, increasing his Lexile score from 381 to 682 in less than half a year.
