The Jacob’s Ladder Gifted Reading Comprehension Program targets reading comprehension skills in high-ability learners by moving students through an inquiry process from basic understanding to critical analyses of texts, using a field-tested method developed by the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary. Students in Year 5 will learn to comprehend and analyse any reading passage after completing the short stories activities in Jacob’s Ladder, Year 5 (2nd ed.).
Corresponding to the activities in Jacob’s Ladder, Year 5 (2nd ed.), students read high-interest passages, then complete skill ladders connected to the readings to move them from concrete thinking skills to higher-order, critical-thinking skills.
This set includes five copies of the Jacob’s Ladder Student Workbook: Year 5, Short Stories, 2nd Edition.
