essential partners

The 3Cs Classroom curriculum is a framework designed to empower high school teachers to foster braver and more constructive classrooms in America through curiosity, compassion, and courage.

“A lot of my students see the use in this more than how to write an argumentative essay. I’m not saying that’s not useful. It is. But you know, I love the example that one of them gave me. They were like, ‘I’m not going to write an argumentative essay to my boss if I want a raise; I’m going to talk to them. And this is really cool that I’m learning how to do that.’”

“A group of six kids would argue with each other a lot when we were doing group work [before the 3Cs Classroom curriculum]. And I’m just thinking back. I don’t remember any arguing at all [after 3Cs Classroom]. Actually, they worked without a problem. They were laughing; they were having fun.”

“It’s hard sometimes as a teacher to make a good classroom culture with kids. We have a really stressful job. There’s just a lot going on… I think that if more teachers had a guide — like, a lesson to help them do that — it would make their job a lot happier and make the kids a lot happier. [3Cs Classroom] was a framework that helped establish that good classroom culture.”
