  • Is there anything already in place to tie in the Common Core Standards with the READ 180 lesson plans? 

    Hi there, Do you have Next Generation? If so, these are completely tied to common core. The standards will print out on your lesson plan. There is also some info on the scholastic site about ccss and how read 180 ties in. www.scholastic.com/read180

    Hi lshaw: The Anchor Videos are not able to be downloaded from the Community Website, but you may launch and view them using the READ 180 Interactive Teaching System. For more information about the ITS please visit: http://read180.scholastic.com/shop/enterprise-edition-its

    Hi Leticiamorls1585: You're correct, this is available to you on the ITS. Also, lshaw: the READ 180 anchor videos are not available for download, but you can launch and view them directly from the ITS. For more information about the READ 180 Interactive Teaching System, please visit: http://read180.scholastic.com/shop/enterprise-edition-its

    Awesome! I also have this available to me now on the ITS!

    I'm trying to teach other core course, meet a HS newspaper deadline, and study my new rBook for Stage B. (Rec'd book last Friday). I feel like I'm tap dancing -- but believing it's going to work out. Does anyone know if we can download Anchor Videos? What about location of short passages with both important and unimportant details for teaching Main Idea?

    Wow...sounds like you guys are in the same situation I am in. I am feeling my way around. I also teach 6th,7th and 8th grade Math, Science and SS. I think as time goes by we will be pros soon. I am having my READ-180 coach come and help set my room up. I am not sure if I have all of my materials. I also don't know how to access some of them (although I have the notes somewhere).

    School started August 25, and we just received our material. Students placed in READ 180 have been attending class since day 1--how long will it take to set up the room and get started? I also teach 3 core content areas as well.

    Does anyone know whether or not it's appropriate to allow students to refer to the dictionary while taking their SRI?

    The third week did not have enought "meat" to keep my students busy.

    I love the first two weeks. I just wish the "extra" activities were available to download.
