Engage All Learners

In a TCI classroom, learning comes alive! Flexible lesson options—hands-on classroom activities, video activities, and reading activities—let you pick the engagement style that works for your students.

Active Learning with Video Activities

TCI’s Video Activities are not passive, sit-and-play videos. These dynamic activities engage students with compelling storylines and interactions. Use them as class activities or individual assignments.

For example, in History Alive! The United States Through Industrialism, students follow the adventures of a “Private I,” or a Private Inquirer, to dig into the inquiry process.


Support All Learners

TCI’s programs include many reading tools, strategies, and activities to support students. Explore TCI’s English Language Support
