The Jacob's Ladder 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 grades K-1 will learn to comprehend and analyze any reading passage after completing the activities in Jacob's Ladder, Grades K-1 (2nd ed.).
Geared for students in grades K1, this book, a revision of the Primary Level 1 book, includes stories and ladder tasks carefully selected for young children to develop oral communication and listening skills in addition to the other ladder goals. This level provides stories focused on picture analysis, read alouds, classics, and original works.
