Core curriculum programs
We strive to create low floors and high ceilings for students in our core curriculum programs, to borrow a phrase from learning theorist and Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Seymour Papert. In other words, we engage all students with challenging content by creating multiple entry points and different modalities to access the content. We also empower teachers with tools to provide robust scaffolding and differentiated instruction (the stairs to climb up to the high ceiling), to ensure that all of their students can fully engage with rigorous subject matter.

Using a fundamentally different approach to language arts, Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is a PreK–5 program that sequences deep content knowledge with research-based foundational skills. CKLA met expectations and received green ratings from EdReports. Learn more about the program.
