Hello. I'm a teacher in NJ and we have to write SGO's.

Has anyone ever used either the Read 180 or the System 44 programs to write their SGO's for NJ?

    Debbie Lee, the Stage C blogger, is a teacher in New Jersey, and I am certain she has worked with Student Growth Objectives for New Jersey. I am going to ask her what she does. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    Hi! Yes, I write 2 SGOs a year for my students. My favorite is the Writing Zone. I also use Lexile improvement (Growth Goals Report) or comprehension/level improvement (Comprehension Report).
