About this item

This book outlines a supplemental reading comprehension program that uses targeted readings from poetry and short stories, including award-winning picture books, fairy tales, and fables, for high-ability students in first and second grades. The program involves students in an inquiry process that moves from lower-order to higher-order thinking skills, beginning with basic literary understanding and analyzing texts. Tasks are arranged into six skill ladders, each focusing on a different skill: drawing implications and consequences from readings through sequencing and cause-and-effect activities; making generalizations by providing details and examples and classifying and organizing them; identifying setting and characters and making inferences about the literary situation, main ideas, themes, and concepts; creative synthesis through paraphrasing and summarizing activities; developing emotional responses to the literature by understanding emotion, expressing it, and channeling it productively; and understanding, applying, and embedding new vocabulary and literary devices in students’ and others’ creative writing. Readings are provided (though the recommended picture books are not included), as are pre-assessment and post-assessment readings and questions, a rubric for scoring assessments, a discussion checklist, and classroom diagnostic forms. The program is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. This edition adds new readings and ladders. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
