McAuliffe Manual Middle School uses Amplify, a standards-based, hands-on investigations, literacy-rich activities, and interactive digital tools to empower students to think, write, and argue like real scientists and engineers.

It was developed by UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science. The curriculum aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards’ (NGSS) performance expectations. You can learn more about NGSS here.

Lessons are organized into thematic units and students investigate questions relevant to real-life problems by conducting investigations; collecting and analyzing data; developing and using models to explain phenomena, and engaging in argument from evidence, all in a literacy and discourse-rich environment.
