IEP goal bank

Hi Everyone,

I hate re-creating the wheel and am wondering if anyone can steer me to any IEP goals that would go along with READ 180 stage C.  Would anyone mind sharing?

    IEP goals are very individual and need to be related to the student's own disabling condition.  In fact, though REAd 180 is used as an intervention, I usually caution teachers to not use the words "READ 180" in the IEP.  I suggest using a term such as "reading intervention program."  That covers you if you find the student is not responding to READ 180.

    I have a reading and a writing goal that I use on my IEPs: Reading: By ________, after independently reading a book within his / her reading level, _______ will demonstrate mastery through recalling facts about the book by answering questions with 90% mastery on 3 out of 4 books read over the course of the semester. (change the number of books based on student's lexile) Writing: By _____________, ________ will compose a paragraph that includes a topic sentence, 3 supporting sentences, and a conclusion by scoring 4 out of 5 on a teacher made rubric. Hope this helps!

    I use this for reading.... STUDENT will increase reading comprehension skills by improving her Lexile score from XXX to XXX, by answering inferential multiple choice questions within texts, using an alternative general education curriculum.

    When writing IEP goals, keep in mind that a Lexile is not a skill. The goal must be more specific and address a skill such as comprehension, fluency or decoding.
