Real-Time Projects provide additional opportunities to differentiate instruction.
Extending Learning With Real-Time Projects
Available on the READ 180 Community, Real-Time Projects allow students to connect each rBook Workshop to current events and issues. Real-Time Projects guide students to engage with multimedia through assignments such as commenting on online news articles, writing a blog entry, and composing an email.
The projects include one page of step-by-step instructions and one page to complete the project. Because each project takes 20 minutes to complete, they can fit in almost anywhere in the Instructional Model.
