Inquiry By Design is committed to student-centered literacy and language learning marked by the reading, writing about, and discussion of content-rich, complex texts. We firmly believe that all students deserve—and even crave—real, meaningful, and relevant work.
We partner with individual schools and school districts across the country to provide smart, engaging, and rigorous curriculum designed to meet the language arts requirements demanded by CCSS and TEKS. Our materials provide students opportunities to
- Read, write about, and discuss interesting and engaging literary and informational texts.
- Write in a range of genres including narrative and expository, with a strong focus on developing text-based explanations and arguments.
- Get smarter about the real reading, writing, and discussion work that distinguishes the best language arts classrooms.
Our professional development offerings—which range from topical workshops to intensive, customized sessions for schools and school districts looking to improve language arts instruction—are designed to help school leaders and teachers raise levels of reading, writing, and discussion in their classrooms. Participants leave with a better understanding of how to help students meet CCSS and TEKS requirements and a vision for what an effective classroom should look and feel like.
