    The Spelling Zone is sometimes more difficult for students who struggle more. They must spell each word within 30 seconds. They cannot put in extra characters or spaces. Sometimes they put spaces at the ends of words. They must use capital letters appropriately. Sometimes students have trouble getting out of the Spelling Zone when they have written down the words and copied them into the software. (1 of 2) Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    You can work with your student on the particular study words--there are only three. In Next Generation, we have a report with the words mastered and the current study words. If the student has been stuck for more than a week, I'd do one of two things--give Tech Support a call at 1-800-283-5974 or mark this particular topic as completed in either SAM or Teacher Central, depending upon the version of READ 180 you are using. Then the student can begin with a new topic and move on. (2 of 2) Dee
