Curriculum Overview

 

Amplify ELA is a blended curriculum designed specifically for grades 6-8.  With Amplify ELA, students learn to tackle any complex text and make observations, grapple with interesting ideas, and find relevance for themselves.  Students are engaged through dynamic texts, lively classroom discussions, and meaningful digital experiences.

Built specifically for middle school, Amplify ELA is an interactive core curriculum that brings complex texts to life.  Amplify ELA inspires students to read more deeply, write more vividly, and think more critically.

With text always at the center, students are encouraged to make meaning for themselves.  They develop ideas and options on real-world, relevant texts, instead of focusing on right or wrong answers.

Multiple entry points and differentiated supports allow every student, regardless of fluency or ability level, to engage deeply with the same complex texts and rigorous curriculum. 

For the 2020-2021 Academic Year, we are basing our scope and sequence on the 100 day pathway of instruction to ensure coverage of all standards at each grade level:
