Our approach to science and literacy integration began as a collaborative research and development project funded by the National Science Foundation. Working with the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, The Learning Design Group undertook the ambitious task of developing a model for integrated science and literacy curricula that would reflect the authentic use of reading, writing, listening, and speaking in the discipline of science.

Amplify Science

Grades TK–8

The latest endeavor of The Learning Design Group is Amplify Science, a comprehensive program for students in grades TK-8. Through a partnership with Amplify Education, we are creating a highly innovative and powerful curriculum that will provide a solution for school districts that blurs the distinction between curriculum, implementation, professional development, and research. By harnessing an interactive digital platform, teachers will be able to access and customize lesson plans according to their particular classroom context, their students' learning needs, and their own learning goals.
