The junior High I was at used the Read 180 program for the remedial reading class. I was in an in between class where they didn't need the 180 but they were still not meeting proficiency. I read into it and as usual with book companies not completely convinced. This school had the computer program that went along with it. I would suggest going to the website and reading into, or speaking to a teacher that uses it. Good Luck!

I coordinated a Read 180 class for ED/BD boys in a small alternative school. A trainer said it would take 3 years to get it going really well. The school closed after the first two years, so ...
Anyway, the kids were well motivated by the computer program. SOME of the books and audio books were read with interest. Large group was okay and I finally got small group going well. I started from scratch, had to do a LOT of prep and always felt behind. However, I was using the first version. The new Enterprise edition has a lot more material already organized and it looks like it's much more sequential than the original. There are many parts and much independent student responsibility required so one would need to get really organized. For my group, I was not impressed with outcomes. I also was not really prepared for what was ahead when I started. I coulda been great this third year though Here's an awesome link with great ideas and will help you with organizing. Wish I'd found it at the beginning.

Read 180 is listed in the Florida Center for Reading Research and has some good ratings. I have not used it, but was looking at the website last night and remembered seeing it listed.

Our school implemented the program this year for 3rd-8th grade. The middle school really likes the program. At the elementary level, we have found that the material is not low enough for the lowest 3rd graders. It does seem to be working for many students. We have seen significant growth.
