Brooklyn, NY— (June 4, 2020) Amplify ELA’s second edition for middle school received an all-green rating and perfect scores from EdReports for grades six through eight. Green ratings represent EdReports’ highest ranking, indicating that the curriculum meets expectations for every gateway of their rigorous, educator-led reviews for quality curriculum programs.
Amplify ELA is a standards-aligned, blended language arts curriculum that places text at the center of every lesson. The second edition features rich, updated content and captivating illustrations that reflect the diversity of the students that use the program every day.
Amplify ELA’s new edition was crafted to respond to the distinct challenges and opportunities faced by middle school students and their teachers. This blended program supports digital, print, and hybrid classrooms. It also features Amplify’s Embedded Assessment Measure (EAM), which is a game-changer for teachers. With EAM, assessment moments are woven into the instructional sequence and embedded in student activities and assignments. Students don’t feel they are being assessed, but teachers get powerful data on their progress to support stronger whole-class instruction and effective personalized support.
“We are delighted to see this all-green rating,” said Alexandra Clarke, senior vice president of product and general manager for ELA curriculum at Amplify, “At a time when student engagement is more crucial than ever, Amplify ELA is designed to support teachers in connecting with middle school students across ever-changing instructional scenarios. With resources they can trust and fully integrated insights, data, and guidance, educators can spend their time bringing great texts to life. We’re thrilled to see that reality recognized by EdReports.”
