C3 Literacy Collaborative Project (C3LC)
Through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, National Council for the Social Studies, in partnership with the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE), will provide free professional learning, tools, and resources to support 50 teams of middle level and high school teachers from across the nation to utilize the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards. The goal of this initiative is to enable social studies teachers to implement the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects by using the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards.
