How can I use Read 180 with my ESOL students?

Specifically, what do i do during the Small Groups for ESOL students? Their Real Book is written in English and they do not read English, while some may even have limited ability to read in their native tongue. They can translate the student application, when on their chromebooks, but not the Real Book. Thank you for any suggestions you might have.

    READ 180 is designed to teach reading in English. It can be used with ESOL students. With limited space here to respond, I ask people to email me directly at AskDee@sbcglobal.net. We can discuss some ideas. Dee, Ask Dee at the Community
