Alameda School District features Inquiry by Design

The district uses a program called Inquiry by Design to promote deeper reading, writing and discourse, with an eye toward building critical thinking skills. The program, which has been used for several years in grades six through 12 and is in its second year of piloting at grades four and five, has students performing the close reading, analysis and classroom collaboration that are expected under Common Core.
