ARCHIVE: Houghton Mifflin Read 180 and System 44 Training

  • North Star - Lower Level Conference Area 1250 West Broadway Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55411 United States (map)


Read 180 is a comprehensive system of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development proven to raise reading achievement for struggling readers in grades 4-12+. Designed for any student reading two or more years below grade-level, READ 180 leverages adaptive technology to individualize instruction for students and provide powerful data for differentiation to teachers.

System 44 is a breakthrough foundational reading and phonics intervention program designed for our most challenged, struggling readers in grades 3-12+. Intentionally metacognitive, System 44 includes state-of-the-art adaptive reading technology that delivers direct, explicit, research-based foundational reading and phonics instruction, as well as engaging print materials for student to practice in reading, writing, and spelling.
