Rainbow worked collaboratively with the client to develop the Grade 5 Teacher Guide for Ladders Common Core Readers. Rainbow was responsible for editorial development, design, page composition in InCopy-enabled InDesign file format, full review of Printer PDFs on InSite, production through final file delivery, and alignment and correlation to CCSS.
Ladders is a supplemental content literacy program that includes student books and teacher materials. Science and social studies content is highlighted through multiple genres. The student books were created for four different reading levels, but included the same content. The laddered approach to leveled readers was created in order to differentiate while still providing a shared experience. The teacher materials provide easy-to-use instructional plans for content, comprehension, and writing goals to ensure complete coverage of Common Core Standards for Literature, Informational Text Reading, and Informational Text Writing.
Rainbow’s editorial, design, and management team worked cohesively with National Geographic | Cengage Learning to ensure the files flowed seamlessly between all groups and the highest quality content was delivered.
