This is the program my P really wants me to look into for my classroom. She ordered some information books from the Read 180 site- I've skimmed through the whole thing and for the life of me can't see how this would be used in a resource room. The research mentions that special education students showed more growth etc. etc. but when you read how the program works, it sounds to me like they're talking about a regular ed classroom. It's a 90 minute "reader's workshop" just like we have in gen ed, and it mentions "whole group instruction, small group differentiated instruction, and independent reading" as rotations in the reader's workshop- again exactly what our gen ed classrooms do. I have groups of no more than 5 students at a time and it's all "differentiated small group" obviously. I wouldn't have a need to have students read independently while I was meeting with other groups, and "whole group" lessons would still be "small group" given the number of students in my classes. Is this program meant for self-contained special ed classes? The only way I could see really being able to implement something like this would be if I had a self-contained class with 12-15 students all day long and I was their main reading teacher. My students must go to the entire gen ed 90 minute literacy block, and I really can't take them for a reading lesson more than 40 minutes a day (for most, it's more like 30). Has anyone used this in resource and how did you do it?
