Student Experience

By placing students in the driver’s seat, READ 180 motivates striving readers to take an active part in their success. Through structured, systematic instruction, students gain independence in the classroom as they explore content that excites them—opening the door for a new relationship with reading.

That’s why READ 180 places teachers at the heart of the program’s implementation. With an army of tools at their fingertips—outlined in the Blended Learning Handbook go-to guide—teachers can do what they do best: teach with confidence and purpose.
