Del Oro High School

Keeping students engaged in the classroom is always a challenge.  The team from the Placer Union High School District will be creating Social Science lessons to keep students engaged and increase student achievement through the use of primary source documents.  We will be accomplishing this while conducting four lesson study cycles where we will plan a lesson, teach, observe, reflect, revise, and re-teach the lesson utilizing data collected throughout the process to analyze student engagement and achievement.  Our team includes teachers from two comprehensive high schools and one continuation high school.  Lessons will be designed with the goal of reaching and engaging students at all levels, fostering critical and historical thinking skills.
