What is Amplify CKLA (grades PreK-5)?

Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) was built from the ground up on the science of reading. It combines systematic foundational skills with the most content knowledge of any other program: all within high-quality instructional materials designed to support teachers. Only Amplify CKLA combines an explicit, multisensory approach to phonics with rich texts carefully sequenced to build content knowledge—so that learning to read and reading to learn develop together.

What is Amplify ELA (grades 6-8)?

Amplify ELA is a high-interest 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.
