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.

This program sets the bar for reading instruction.  It truly enables our students to fall in love with reading again.

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.

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.

I use this program with my special education students and have witnessed the success and joy it gives them.

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

The C. I. A. units of study offer a research-based approach to reading comprehension that has resulted in various success stories. There is no other process that utilizes and combines numerous reading strategies in order to meet the needs of students on all reading levels.
