Maryland Social Studies Curriculum by TCI
Maryland: Teaching for the 21st Century
Teaching social studies can be both challenging and rewarding. Some lessons keep students on the edges of their seats, while others have them struggling to stay engaged. Here at TCI, our staff of former educators know the struggle of keeping students engaged and helping them learn and retain information. This is why we’ve created a number of social studies curriculum programs for students of all ages to help teachers and students enjoy social studies as much as possible.
We know the importance of getting your students involved in their learning, especially when it comes to in-class participation and information retention. You want students who are excited to learn and who are passionate about social studies, and you want to achieve that level of teaching success without spending every free moment planning lessons, preparing activities, and writing tests. That’s where TCI comes in. Not only have we created high school, middle school, and elementary social studies curriculum programs, but we’ve also designed our programs to be engaging and full of valuable resources for both teachers and students.
Having engaging social studies curriculum is a great first step in improving your teaching and getting your students more involved in classroom learning. However, we’ve seen firsthand the incredible benefits that come with teachers having access to a number of valuable resources. We’ve done our best to make everything easy to access and simple to utilize so that you can spend less time planning and more time teaching and having meaningful interactions with your students.
Ready-to-use lesson plans, pre-made interactive presentations, easy-to-use software platforms, and customizable assessments are just a few of the many resources we offer those who love teaching social studies. In addition, we’ve integrated Maryland social studies standards into every part of our elementary, high, and middle school social studies curriculum programs. That means that for every lesson, assignment, activity, presentation, and assessment you use, you can see quickly and easily what Maryland social studies standards it meets. This minimizes your prep time and allows you to make the most of your time both during and outside of class.
Student Resources: Print + Digital
We haven’t forgotten about the most important part of teaching social studies: the students! In addition to our countless teacher resources, all of our social studies curriculum programs come with a number of student resources so that your students can get extra help, explore lessons more thoroughly, and grow in their love of learning and social studies. First off, our social studies curriculum comes with both print and digital textbooks so you and your students can choose whichever you prefer. The digital option is also completely accessible so that students can access it on any device, change the text size, enlarge images, and even listen to the text being read to them. Additionally, they can play Lesson Games, interact with the presentations, explore a media library, utilize interactive tutorials, and more. With Maryland social studies standards integrated into every aspect of our social studies programs, students are sure to master the content and grow in their love and knowledge of a variety of social studies topics.
