The "Affective Jacob's Ladder Reading Comprehension Program" uses a models approach to scaffold student learning and promote inquiry-based discussions of texts. This series of Jacob's Ladder focuses specifically on supporting advanced students' social-emotional needs through the discussion of reading selections in the following genres: short stories and media, poetry, and speeches, essays, and biographies. Each set of student workbooks includes 5 student booklets, divided by grade level and area of emphasis. Corresponding to the activities in "Affective Jacob's Ladder, Grades 6-8", students read high-interest passages, then complete skill ladders connected to the poetry and song lyric readings and activities to move them from lower to higher level skills of self-awareness, metacognition, and goal setting. The ladders include multiple skills necessary for success and integrate reading comprehension and analysis skills with affective and social-emotional needs, as students are asked to apply themes, character or real-life experiences, and lessons from texts to their own lives. Student workbooks are also available for the short story and media activities and the interview, biography, and speech activities.
