One of the top concerns raised by reading teachers in the United States is that students lack the motivation to read. The Read Side by Side Reading Program successfully tackles this concern by teaching students to read the texts they want to read. Authentic chapter books and longer nonfiction are the foundation of this exceptional program. Students gain tools to become powerful readers who know how to solve text-processing problems and feel competent to do so.

I have never seen a program work for native children and children of color the way this program does.  It is a culturally responsive, gap closing curriculum.

I am so excited about this program because my students are begging me to read!  I have never experienced this with any other curriculum.

The C. I. A. Approach allows readers of all levels to access texts with rich vocabulary and plot.  With this program, I am better able to serve my students.

Shelby Liesing
5th Grade Teacher, Mukilteo, WA

I have watched this program turn poor readers into strong readers.  Students that once told me they hated reading now can’t wait till we begin book groups.  Thank you for being willing to put out a program that allows students to fall in love with reading and understand what it is they are reading.

This method is wonderful for homeschooling parents because the units are scripted out, and the path to independence is clear.
