Since READ 180 Universal's released in 2016,
we've been flooded with messages and comments from teachers about how much they
love the new version of the program---from the student app to the teacher
supports---find out they like most!
- "READ 180 Universal moves into the 21st century with enriching
student-appropriate content to access all potential deficit areas of literacy. It encourages students to acquire a growth mindset and pushes them
forward with gentle guidance. My students think READ
180 Universal rocks, for real!"
- "...Seeing more success with Universal than any other program. I remind
them to simply ask for help or clarification when needed and students are overall doing well."
Student App/Software Rotation
- "My students are excited to get
onto the Student App; they really
enjoy the topics that are chosen and feel as though they are making progress."
- "I like the changes made in the student software. The application is updated and I
love the way the vocabulary is supported."
- "I enjoy the platform for the
students where they can review their
graded writing assignments and their fluency recordings."
love the new format, the level of
difficulty of each task, the data reports and how the activities in Reading
Zone and Language Zone assessments look very much like the SOL."
- "My students' favorite part of the new READ 180 Universal experience is the new student software since it
has high interest stories for students."
Small- & Whole- Group Rotations
thing I like about Universal is the students ReaL Books. They are much
more student-friendly and incorporate
text structures as well as language
development activities more effectively than previous versions.
Additionally, the student application activities are more closely aligned and
formatted like SOL questions."
- "My students are really interested in the
content. They honestly explore topics before selecting a new one. I find the selections interesting and
"The great content in the ReaL Book---my students LOVE that there
is only one book as opposed to the L and R books."
"The lessons that are taught are
much more relevant and up-to-date
regarding what is going on in the outside world."
Independent Reading Rotation
- "I like the extended
focus on reading selections. Next Generation and Enterprise only offered three
reading selections per workshop. With the additional passages in Universal, we can really dive into the themes of each
workshop and develop them over time."
"The ease of access online---the
audio books are on the computer (no more CDs!), students love the ability to read their books online, I can respond
to their writing and send it back to them, videos are online."
- "Wow! How did I ever teach without Teacher Central? Having lesson plans
online are great to use. The assignment grading is easier to use to grade the recordings and writing portions. Having Quickwrites
online is much easier to grade."
- "The platform and reports are easier to navigate as a teacher."
