Introductory Overview of C3 for Educators

This investigation presents an introductory overview of the background, goals, and design of the C3 Framework (4 Dimensions), how/why it can be used to meet the Common Core State Standards, and where to go to find resources. Spend time reading the C3 Framework to become familiar with it, listening to the architects of the document, and reflecting on how the C3 Framework can impact the teaching of social studies.
