Read 180, a research-proven system for raising reading achievement, is designed to support educators while helping struggling readers meet rigorous expectations. In Read 180, students engage with and evaluate texts across a range of types and disciplines - with a strong emphasis on information text - and consider multiple perspectives that represent a variety of periods, cultures, and viewpoints. Throughout Read 180, students compose both on-demand and process writing as well as short, focused research projects.
Title I at TCA provides support for students in schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to ensure that all children in grades kindergarten to grade 3 meet challenging state academic standards. After grade 3, children requiring additional assistance complete our Read 180 program, a class dedicated to raising literacy rates of struggling readers in grades 4 and 5.
