Hand-On Learning

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 strengthen students’ literacy skills and support cross-disciplinary instruction. ELA/ELD standards are reinforced throughout the activities and notebook prompts.


Promotes Citizenship

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