Are you teaching Read 180 to 4th grade students?

I am seeking input from teachers who have implemented Read 180 in a regular ed. setting with at least 14 grade students and no para or team teacher support. I am wondering if the program is developmentally appropriate for such a large group of struggling readers at this age.

    READ 180 was originally developed for an ideal group of 15 students. We implemented with 15 in our classes. It works well. The only caveat I have for you is that all of your students need to be struggling readers. READ 180 is designed as an intervention for struggling readers and should work well with your class of 14.
