Feedback form is now closed.

Has your team been frustrated in trying to meet the needs of your highest readers? Do you find your curriculum is not providing opportunities for your advanced readers to grow? Do you struggle to measure your most advanced student’s progress in reading because standardized reading bench-marking makes it hard for the most advanced readers to show growth?

Our team has aligned our reading modules to the Jacob's Ladder Skill Progressions developed through the Center for Gifted Education at the College of William and Mary for all learners in the classroom. All students in the classroom are provided with modeling, practice, and assessment for each rung of Jacob’s Ladder.

During this session we will focus on planning process, a curriculum overview, as well as provide a sample unit, rubric, and assessment. We will share with you our data success stories and student writing examples. This session will leave you excited to get planning to meet the needs of all learners within your classroom.

Participant Outcomes:
  • Learn about the skill progressions in Jacob’s Ladder and how to teach and assess those skills within their reading curriculum modules to grow all learners in abstract and interpretive thinking
  • Have tools for monitoring the progress of their students on each skill in Jacob’s Ladder progression
