The College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards re-envisions the purpose and instructional practices of social studies education in the states. 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), developed these free professional learning tools, and resources to help school teachers from across the nation use this (C3) Framework.
