Jacob's Ladder is a program which
enhances reading comprehension
and builds critical thinking skills.

Tasks are organized by skill ladders
with questions and activities within each.
The skill ladders in Jacob's Ladder
correspond with the higher level, critical thinking skills
targeted in the William & Mary language arts units,
based on Paul's (1992) Elements of Reasoning model.

* Ladder A

* Ladder B

* Ladder C
* Ladder D
