AMAZEworks Curriculum

Beginning Fall 2021, Burroughs began implementing the AMAZEworks curriculum in all classrooms. AMAZEworks Elementary Curriculum empowers teachers and children to co-create classrooms of equity and belonging where children feel valued, respected, and connected by engaging in intentional, regular discussions about identity, differences, and bias.

This research-based curriculum is grounded in anti-bias education theory and presents diversity through the lens of family. The PreK – 5 curriculum:

  • Fosters social-emotional learning through the lens of anti-bias education
  • Is literature-based and includes 20 high-quality trade books per grade level, written from authentic voice whenever possible. 
  • Includes two printed curriculum guides with lesson plans for each book with discussion questions, journal prompts, and follow-up activities for each unit. 
  • Covers a wide range of identities, family structures, and lived experiences, including race/ethnicity, immigration, religion, socioeconomics, disabilities, gay/lesbian/transgender family members, divorce/blended, aging, foster care, incarceration, death, deployment, and adoption.
  • Includes a Scope and Sequence and literacy alignment. 
  • Is aligned with Common Core standards. 
  • Can be used in small and large group settings.

For more information visit the AMAZEworks website.
