Teacher Created Materials began in 1977. For over 40 years Teacher Created Materials (TCM) has published innovative, imaginative, and award-winning resources for teachers and students in all subjects for Grades K-12. Our driving vision is to Create a World in which Children Love to Learn! TCM’s products are evidence based – our data shows that our products have directly increased student achievement.
Teacher Created Materials is a leading educational publisher with products that are used in classrooms in all 50 states and in 89 countries. Everything we publish is still created by teachers for teachers and students because we still believe that no one knows what teachers need more than other teachers and we know that all students can become lifelong learners. And each year we provide professional development to over 10,000 teachers, helping them to perfect their craft. It is that sense of commitment to teachers, students, and the community that exemplifies our mission, vision, and values and underlies everything we do.
Teacher Created Materials’ Mathematics Readers, 2nd Edition, combines nonfiction and fiction texts with problem solving and mathematical reasoning and real-world connections to help students explore mathematical practices in a meaningful way. Standards-based content address the instructional shifts of focus, coherence, and rigor and challenge students to use higher-order thinking skills, while facilitating meaningful mathematical discourse.
