High-quality instructional materials in action
Welcome. What are high-quality instructional materials, and why do they matter? We’ve assembled resources here for you to explore how to support your district or school in adopting a high-quality program.
A growing body of research shows that, in addition to the influence of teachers, curriculum has a significant effect on student learning. Quality curriculum is also a great tool for teachers: it saves them time and enables them to focus on interacting with their students.

How does it come to life for teachers and students? Here are five fundamentals of how we think about it at Amplify.
