Build Culturally-Responsive Classrooms

TCI’s philosophy is grounded in the goal of creating inclusive classroom communities in which students learn about the world through multiple perspectives and make connections to their own lives.

Accurate and Diverse Content

Accurate and Diverse Content

Accuracy and diversity drive TCI’s curriculum-development process. Our programs are guided by state standards, but TCI is committed to going beyond the standards to highlight the voices of historically underrepresented groups. This includes examining multiple perspectives and integrating important primary sources. TCI has an extensive editorial and scholarly review process to ensure that our content is both fair and accurate.

Inclusive and Diverse Classroom

Cooperative, Inclusive Classroom

TCI’s Cooperative, Inclusive Classroom provides the foundation for our approach to active learning. This involves creating a classroom environment where all students are valued and have a voice. In this classroom, teachers build meaningful connections with students and act as facilitators for student learning. Teachers also set norms that allow for civil discourse and the respectful expression of viewpoints and perspectives.

Making Personal Connections

Making Personal Connections

Making personal connections to content is at the heart of TCI’s approach to teaching. Each lesson begins with a preview activity that helps students build background knowledge and make connections to upcoming content. Lessons include opportunities for students to take part in authentic learning assignments in which they are encouraged to apply their personal voice and interests to demonstrate what they have learned.

Student-Centered Curriculum

Hands-On Learning

Active learning is at TCI’s core; every lesson utilizes at least one of our six unique hands-on classroom strategies. TCI activities get students excited and curious; students are inspired to ask questions and conduct purposeful research. They make written and oral arguments, support claims with evidence, and take informed action when appropriate.

Integrated Literacy

Integrated Literacy

Many fiction and nonfiction literary genres—representing diverse groups and viewpoints—are embedded throughout the program. Writing assignments are aligned to Common Core to strengthen students’ literacy skills and support cross-disciplinary instruction. ELA/ELD standards are reinforced throughout the activities and notebook prompts.

Active Citizenship

Promotes Active Citizenship

Students “do democracy” through civic discourse and by engaging with their local communities. They build empathy by reading and learning about various perspectives.
