How does a school system increase academic achievement when almost 30% of its students are English Language Learners, and half of that number happen to be economically disadvantaged? San Diego City Schools partnered with public and private organizations, as well as with two Education Technology Professors from San Diego State University to develop "inquiry-oriented, standards-based curriculum units." Visitors should definitely check out the "webquests" link at the top of the page to see how teachers integrated technology into the curriculum. There are four criteria into which the projects are divided - Featured Projects, Grade-Level Projects, Literature-Based Projects and Ocean-Themed Projects. Each is further divided by grade level. The Featured Projects section has a wonderful array of quests for visitors to browse, including projects for high school students in designing and marketing a genetics product and aiding revolutionaries in their quest for democracy based on an examination of the political systems of other countries.
