See why our standards-aligned curriculum is perfect for your classroom.
TCI’s content also supports students in learning the citizenship skills they need to actively participate in their schools and communities. This includes a Citizenship Toolkit that provides concrete lessons that help students channel their energy and passion in productive ways.
TCI’s programs are designed with one primary goal: to help students master the essential skills and knowledge. To this end, every unit includes primary sources and activities to make the lessons more inquiry-based and to help your students develop critical-thinking skills.
TCI’s standards-aligned social studies curriculum meets the criteria for national frameworks such as the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts and Literacy. It also aligns with state standards across the United States, all so that teachers can focus on what they do best—teaching.
