Never trained in Read 180

Hi. I’m a teacher that teaches in a high school that utilizes Read 180, but I was never really comprehensively trained on how to run the program comprehensively When our district first implemented the program all the new teachers were trained, but since then new hires like me have not. Is there some way online that I could potentially get digital training?? There just seems so much to the program and would like to be more informed in how to fully utilize it.

    If you have Next Generation, one of the places to start is in the videos from SAM Resources. Look for the ITS tab. The beginning of the rBook Teacher Edition is another place to look. I have read through that several different times to remember things that I forgot. In the Red pages at the end of the rBook are several places to look.

    For Universal, a starting point is in the Universal HMH Teacher Central Resources. Also, look at the Tech Support page for links to Teacher Central guidelines. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    For both Next Generation and Universal, look at the Tech Support pages for support. It is at https://www.hmhco.com/product-support. I also recommend Debbie Lee's blogpost at http://educatorcommunity.hmhco.com/blog/stage-c/demo-videos-for-universal-next-generation-system-44-the-ri-and-pi for anyone. At the HMH Back to School pages at https://backtoschool.hmhco.com/get-started/programs/ select the R in the menu. Then scroll through to find your version of READ 180. Dee, Ask Dee


    Finally, you can email me directly at AskDee@sbcglobal.net. We can discuss anything you need to know about getting started with READ 180. Also, you can ask your supervisor to contact the HMH sales representative to arrange for a training class. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
