and Diverse Texts

Equity, Inclusion, and Cultural Relevance

Guaranteed Viable Curriculum

Oregon educators
have high expectations. 

We’re here to meet them.

We have a long history with the Beaver State. In fact, our curriculum is already in some of the largest school districts in Oregon, as well as the smallest. The way we see it, the more Oregon learns with us, the more we learn how to better serve all Oregon students. It’s a win-win!

A few places where Inquiry By Design is taught:

  • Portland Public Schools

  • Bend-La Pine Schools

  • North Clackamas School District

  • Tigard-Tualatin School District

  • Black Butte School District

What Oregon Is Saying
About Inquiry By Design

I have NEVER (in 21 years) worked with a better curriculum that truly focuses on student engagement and student learning.

Portland Public SchoolsTeacher

...it's my ELL kids and my special education students who have been told their whole life there's a right answer and a wrong answer....They're the ones who step up to the plate and succeed more than anyone else.

North Clackamas School DistrictTeacher

Students are talking in ways I have never seen before. … I have seen a dramatic change in my students’ love for learning because they are the stars. I am excited and energized because I am fascinated with the notion that [there is] no need to have [my answers]!! It is very freeing.

Portland Public SchoolsTeacher

I appreciate the sophistication of the lesson design and the methods incorporated into other texts and content areas. Also, the Common Core connection is very strong.

Bend-La Pine SchoolsTeacher

Inquiry By Design allows my grade-level team to dig deep around student writing and engage in collaborative conversations on where our students are in relation to the rubric and how to support getting them to the next level.
