Description

Amplify is reimagining the way teachers teach and students learn. We believe technology can empower classroom teachers to offer more personalized instruction, and accelerate the potential of individual students to become more active, engaged learners. Come and work with us!

Amplify has created a rigorous and riveting digital ELA curriculum for Middle Schools that provides teachers with a scope and sequence aligned to the College- and Career Readiness Standards and students with an interactive learning experience that will ignite a passion for reading and writing. Students read complex and engaging texts with leveled supports, and deepen their understanding of the text by regular writing and targeted and timely feedback from their teachers. Students and teachers work on devices (laptops, desktops or tablets) connected through a shared platform.
