Fresno High School

Our plan is to develop an inquiry driven curriculum that utilizes local resources to increase achievement, engagement and enrollment in GATE, Honors and IB courses. We aim to increase student's abilities to develop questions, create a research plan, engage with high-level academic materials and, most importantly, find answers to their questions. We will create a professional development plan which will build the freshman English and History teachers' capacity to lead inquiry-based instruction for their students and develop inquiry based units. In addition, we will create plans that align with the newly-adopted common core standards and the unit planners required by the IBO.
