Read 180 Universal- Are there Flex options for the Real Book?

I am curious about the new universal program. Is there only one book at each stage, or are there Flex options? Thanks!

    I'm checking on this. I was told last year that they wer coming out with one, but I haven't seen one yet. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    It is pretty interesting program as for me


    I'm still waiting to hear. I'll ask someone else if I don't hear in a day or two. Dee. Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    Thanks, Dee! We have several students at our school who need more than one year of Read 180, and we are hoping that we won't have to repeat curriculum!

    We have many kids that do more than 1 year. How do you get through the whole book in a year?


    Many people do not complete the book in a year. Do not worry about that. Take a look at some Debbie Lee's blog (Stage C). She talks about using the book over a couple years from time to time. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    This is my fifth year of teaching Read 180, and we always make it through at least 7 of the 9 workshops in the Next Gen rBooks (our district actually requires us to complete 6). Is there any new information in regards to the development of a Flex option for the Read 180 Universal Real Book?

    We switched Read180 Universal instead of NG and the REALbook (consumable) lasts more than one year for sure. We will only complete 3 of the workshops this year.


    I still don't have an official answer, but I have been told that they are working on a Year 2 option, but it is not ready yet. What would I do? Short of a Year 2 option being released, I'd consider ordering one of the Next Generation books. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
