1 College, Career, and Civic Life C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards ELEMENTARYAdapted from achievethecore.org
2 Rationale for the C3 Framework Marginalization of the Social StudiesMotivation of StudentsThe Future of Our Democracy
3 A Sputnik Moment for the Social Studies In January 2010, National Council for the Social Studies convened 15 national organizations in civics, economics, and history, to have a conversation about common state standards for social studies.
4 Write your definition of social studies. What is Social Studies?Write your definition of social studies.
5 Social Studies Defined The social studies is an interdisciplinary exploration of the social sciences and humanities, including civics, history, economics, and geography, in order to develop responsible, informed, and engaged citizens and to foster civic, global, historical, geographic, and economic literacy.
6 Background: A Three Year State-led Effort Social Studies Assessment, Curriculum and Instruction (SSACI) Collaborative at CCSSO23 statesLos Angeles County Office of EducationUniversity of Delaware15 Professional Organizations17 Writers50 Teachers10 Editors4 Graphic Designers27 Curricular and Cultural OrganizationsOver 3000 respondents
7 Vision DocumentWhat would you say are the objectives of the new Social Studies framework?
8 What are the Objectives of C3? a) enhance the rigor of the social studies disciplinesbuild critical thinking, problem solving, and participatory skills to become engaged citizensalign academic programs to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies.
9 What is the ultimate goal? For students to study civics, economics, geography, and history to become active and engaged citizens in the 21st century.
10 Principles of the C3 Framework Prepares the nation’s young people for college, careers, and civic life;Inquiry is at the heart of the social studiesFormed by core* disciplines of civics, economics, geography, and history;*Appendices for Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology (9-12)
11 Principles of the C3 Framework Composed of deep and enduring understandings, concepts, and skills from the disciplines. Emphasizes skills and practices as preparation for democratic decision- making.Shares in the responsibilities for literacy instruction in K-12 education.
13 THE INQUIRY ARCDimension Developing Questions and Planning InquiriesDimension Applying Disciplinary Tools and Concepts (Civics, Economics, Geography, and History)Dimension Evaluating Sources and Using EvidenceDimension Communicating Conclusions and Taking Informed Action
14 DISCIPLINARY LITERACY Literacies derived from the Common Core State Standards in English language Arts/Literacy form an essential thread required by the actual demands of college, work, and civic life.Disciplinary Literacy is the use of discipline-specific practices to access, apply, and communicate content knowledge.CLICK
15 How Does a Historian Read? What reading behaviors and habits are needed to “read” this document?How does that relate to:Inquiry?Disciplinary Literacy?Civic Engagement?
16 How Does a Geographer Read? What reading behaviors and habits are needed to “read” this document?How does that relate to:Inquiry?Disciplinary literacy?Civic Engagement?
17 How Does a Political Scientist Read? What reading behaviors and habits are needed to “read” this document?How does that relate to:Inquiry?Disciplinary literacy?Civic Engagement?
18 CIVIC ENGAGEMENTActive and responsible citizens are able to identify and analyze public problems, deliberate with other people about how to define and address issues, take constructive action together, reflect on their actions, create and sustain groups, and influence institutions both large and small. They vote, serve on juries when called, follow the news and current events, and participate in voluntary groups and efforts.
19 Instructional Shifts for Social Studies Craft Questions That MatterEstablish a collaborative context to support student inquiry.Integrate content and skills meaningfully.Articulate disciplinary literacy practices and outcomes.Provide tangible opportunities for taking informed action.
20 Compelling and Supporting Questions Compelling questions focus on real social problems, issues, and curiosities about how the world worksIntellectually meatyKid friendlyExamples:Was the American Revolution revolutionary?Was the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s a success?Why do we need rules?
21 Compelling and Supporting Questions Supporting questions scaffold students’ investigations into the ideas and issues behind a compelling question.Examples:What were the regulations imposed on the colonists under the Townshend Acts?What legislation was enacted as a result of the Civil Rights Movement?What are some rules that families follow?
22 Reflect and discuss…How does questioning by teachers and questioning by students prepare students for college, career, and civic life?
23 Reflect and discuss…Why do you think it was important for the writers of the C3 Framework to make strong connections to the Common Core State Standards?What are some concerns with making those connections?
24 Activity Reflecting on the Shifts for Social Studies Inquiry is at the center.Disciplinary integrity and interdisciplinary connections matter.Informed action and application of knowledge is clear and present.The Inquiry Arc represents an instructional arc – a frame for teaching and learning.What Does This Look Like In the Classroom?Adapted from achievethecore.org
