The politics editors at Kipp Harbor Times were covering the memorial development of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. They needed a visual that conveyed the differing opinions surrounding the story.
Interactive education platform for classrooms
As part of the core 'Curriculum team', we were working on the core product for an interactive experience across classrooms. No matter the learning level, the experience was built around a careful balance of complex literary texts, engaging activities, collaborative projects along with independent work.
It was a three-step approach to this interactive digital learning
Classroom App Experience
The easy to implement classroom app, which initially started as an Android only app, is available for multiple platforms—both desktop and tablets. It provides everything teachers need to facilitate instruction, and everything students need to learn, on or offline:
- Classroom coordination tools that allow teachers to guide individual instructions and manage group discussion and interaction.
- Embedded digital library and interactive, curriculum-based apps.
- Integrated assessments, including embedded progress monitoring, and formative and summative assessments.
- Explicit instruction and practice with evidence-based writing and research.
Core texts and media
Every unit is organized around one or more core texts. The curriculum uses rich media to bring these diverse literary and nonfiction sections to life for all readers, inspiring close reading and evidence-based writing, plus routine opportunities for vocabulary, grammar, and research skill development. Immersive projects called Quests extend students’ understanding and analysis of each unit.
Thanks to real-time data captured during student work both in and outside of the classroom, Amplify ELA creates opportunities for teachers to provide ongoing, constructive feedback and respond to student needs in timely, meaningful ways so that instruction is relevant and personalized.
