Thank you so much for trying Amplify ELA. This Getting Started Guide will help you gain access to the Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe Quest and get comfortable with the program. These instructions are for trial users only.

This demo does not include Amplify’s Grade Book or support the function to submit work to the teacher. If you would like to learn more about these features, contact your Amplify representative to request a demo of the licensed product. Also, if you plan on using this demo in the classroom, students should use the same device (laptop, tablet, etc.) throughout their experience to maintain their completed work in the program.
