This five-minute video produced by Social Studies School Service provides a snapshot of high quality C3 social studies instruction designed to prepare students for active and engaged citizenship.
In the September/October 2014 Social Studies and the Young Learner, Lorraine S. McGarry and Donnan M. Stoicovy describe how their school's annual "town hall meetings" to start the school year led to a C3-aligned project during which students wrote a code of rights and responsibilities, which included the authentic experiences of electing representatives and holding a constitutional convention.
The September 2014 Social Education puts the spotlight on past and present civic challenges. This issue includes resources on the U.S. Constitution and Constitution Day, a look at the C3 Framework on the one year anniversary of its publication, and more.
"The Green Book: Finding Safe Passage in Jim Crow America" is about a road guide that listed places eager to do business with African Americans in the 1930–50s. Picture book author Calvin Alexander Ramsey and editor Steve Lapham offer lesson ideas that involve history, civics, and geography, and recommend a free website of primary source material.
