Anita Wilson

Amplify Reading professional learning specialist

“I love that Amplify’s programs promote a growth mindset in students! Students are often aware of when they are not the strongest readers and this can decrease confidence and interest in reading. In Amplify Reading, for example, students work in game worlds with graphics that align with their peers while working on personalized learning tasks!”
