• Occassionally we take a break from the RBook workshops component of Read 180 and break our class into small groups. The students vote on various novels and are grouped accordingly. The novels chosen almost always captivate the students' interest level and many students ask permission to sign the books out to take home. In doing these novels, many students became more motivated to read and do so with expression when reading to their small group. Students take the reading counts quiz upon completion of the novel.
