✏Teaching Critical Thinking Skills to Fourth Grade Students Identified as Gifted and Talented Book Summary : The purpose of this action research project was to discover if critical thinking skills could be explicitly taught to fourth grade students identified as gifted and talented. The intellectual standards of clarity, accuracy, relevance, logic, and fairness were the focus of the study. Moving students from being naive and self absorbed about heir thinking to taking ownership of their thoughts was the goal. The primary source for the activities came from the Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking for Children (Elder, 2002). Data sources included a student pre- and post-assessment, classroom teacher observation inventory, talented and gifted teacher observation inventory, and both student and teacher journals. There was evidence that teaching these skills raised student awareness of their thinking as well as student attempts to improve in the use of the intellectual standards. The data were difficult to quantify, yet positive growth trends were evident.

✏Jacob s Ladder Reading Comprehension Program Level 4 Book Summary : 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 The College of William and Mary. Using three skill ladders connected to individual readings in poetry, short stories, and nonfiction, students move from lower order, concrete thinking skills to higher order, critical thinking skills. The ladders include multiple skills necessary for academic success, covering language arts standards, such as sequencing, cause and effect, classification, making generalizations, inference, and recognizing themes and concepts. The "Jacob's Ladder" guides provide teachers with an explanation of the nature and substance of supplementary tasks in reading comprehension that will help prepare students for their state assessment tests. At the same time, these tasks will move students from basic reading comprehension to more critical reading behaviors. Also included are an overview of the goals and objectives of "Jacob's Ladder" tasks and suggestions for implementation, giving every teacher of gifted readers the tools needed to create a successful reading classroom. Grades 7-9
