Accurate and Diverse Content

Development Process

Accuracy and diversity drive TCI’s curriculum-development process. Our programs are guided by state standards, as well as a commitment to highlighting multiple perspectives and diverse viewpoints in the curriculum. 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 Classroom

TCI’s Cooperative 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

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.
