Job Description:

A pioneer in K-12 education since 2000, Amplify is leading the way in next-generation curriculum and assessment. Our captivating core and supplemental programs in ELA, math, and science engage all students in rigorous learning and inspire them to think deeply, creatively, and for themselves. Our formative assessment products turn data into practical instructional support to help students at every skill level build a strong foundation in early reading and math. Our programs provide teachers with powerful tools that help them understand and respond to the needs of all their students. Today, Amplify serves five million students in all 50 states.

The Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) and Amplify ELA programs are leading the way in next-generation curriculum with powerful tools that help educators understand and respond to the needs of every student.

Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is a unique PreK-5 ELA core curriculum program, built on the keys to early literacy and long-term success: background knowledge and foundational skills. Amplify CKLA combines a coherent sequence of rich, diverse content knowledge across social studies, science, literature, and the arts with an explicit, systematic approach to foundational skills instruction. Our intentional program design allows students to build a robust knowledge base for accessing and unpacking complex texts, so real comprehension can happen.

Amplify ELA is a blended curriculum designed specifically for grades 6-8. With Amplify ELA, students learn to tackle any complex text and make observations, grapple with interesting ideas, and find relevance for themselves. Students are engaged through dynamic texts, lively classroom discussions, and meaningful digital experiences. Students and teachers work on devices (laptops, desktops or tablets) connected through a shared platform or in print. Because students do many of their assignments on the platform, teachers can see their progress and provide feedback in real time.

Come join the team that supports districts nationwide in adopting these programs based on the science of reading and helping teachers change reading outcomes for students!
