What is the C3 Framework? Prepares the nation’s young people for college, careers, and civic life; Inquiry is its foundation; Formed by core * disciplines of civics, economics, geography, and history; 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. *Appendices for Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology (9-12)
Dimension 1 Developing Questions and Planning Inquiries Dimension 2 Applying Disciplinary Tools and Concepts (Civics, Economics, Geography, and History) Dimension 3 Evaluating Sources and Using Evidence Dimension 4 Communicating Conclusions and Taking Informed Action
Compelling questions focus on real social problems, issues, and curiosities about how the world works Intellectually meaty Kid friendly Examples: Was the American Revolution revolutionary? Was the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s a success? Why do we need rules?
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?
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.
Active 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. Teaching students to be able to act in these ways—as citizens—significantly enhances preparation for college and career.
