About Amplify ELA:
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. 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 opinions on real-world, relevant texts, instead of focusing on right or wrong answers. To learn more about Amplify ELA visit amplify.com/ela.
