What is Amplify ELAR?

Amplify ELAR Texas is a high-interest TEKS-aligned blended language arts and reading curriculum designed specifically for grades 6–8. With Amplify ELAR, students learn to tackle any complex text by making observations, grappling with interesting ideas, and finding relevance for themselves. Students are engaged through dynamic texts, lively classroom discussions, and meaningful digital experiences.

  • Powerful feedback tools: Comprehensive tools help teachers maximize both the quantity and quality of feedback.
