MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb 11, 2020/PRNewswire-iReach/ —TCI, the award-winning online K-12 publishing company, announces that their K-12 Social Studies Curriculum has been adopted by the State of Oklahoma. The program will be among the new curriculum that school districts can choose from, to support the implementation of Oklahoma Academic Standards for Social Studies, which includes engaging in the democratic process, analyzing and addressing authentic civic issues, acquiring and evaluating evidence, reading critically and engaging in evidence-based writing.
The social studies practices crafted by TCI have been created specifically to reflect key disciplinary tools and skills that will prepare students for college, careers, and informed civic life. By marrying great content, meaningful technology and interactive classroom experiences, TCI has developed curricula that range from local history to worldwide influences.
Bert Bower, Founder and Co-CEO of TCI, said, “We are thankful to the Oklahoma Board of Education for helping us with our mission to bring learning alive in classrooms everywhere. Our Social Studies Oklahoma program will provide the state’s diverse students with a unique opportunity to become active participants in their learning thanks to TCI’s award-winning engagement activities and cutting-edge technology.”
TCI has developed a variety of textbooks to meet Oklahoma’s requirements. From elementary through high school, the TCI’s textbooks span from government and politics to world and local history and even include economics in high school. Elementary students will be able to learn about their unique communities and regions of the country, moving into more historical and wide-ranging topics later.
Digital samples of the curriculum and the textbook are now available in the Oklahoma section of TCI’s website. Also their Oklahoma-specific textbooks are available for purchase here.
