Sarah Collinge left the classroom in 2011 to solve a curriculum problem: intermediate students struggled to comprehend the texts they wanted to read and therefore experienced a lack of motivation and desire to read. Since that time, Sarah has diligently worked to solve this problem by authoring the Read Side by Side Reading Program. She now travels world-wide to train teachers in her unique C. I. A. Approach.
