Engage Students Whenever and Wherever They Are
At TCI, we believe learning should not be confined to the classroom. Our flexible curriculum is aligned with state standards and allows teachers to smoothly transition from physical classrooms to blended learning environments using the various resources and tools on our digital platform. We are committed to making sure our curriculum and our products keep teachers and students ahead in the ever-changing world of education.
Build Culturally Responsive Classrooms
Accurate and Diverse Content
Accuracy and diversity drive TCI’s curriculum development process. While our programs are guided by state standards, TCI is committed to going beyond the standards by highlighting the voices of historically underrepresented groups. This includes examining multiple perspectives and integrating primary sources. TCI has an extensive editorial and scholar review process to ensure content is fair and accurate.
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 to student learning. Teachers also set norms that allow for civil discourse and for the sharing of various viewpoints and perspectives.
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 the content they are about to learn. Lessons include opportunities for students to take part in authentic learning assignments that allow them to apply their personal voice and utilize their assets and interests to demonstrate what they have learned.
