This dimension of the C3 Framework does not focus on specific content that students should learn in each of these disciplines. Rather, this dimension outlines the broad concepts and tools that students need to understand the specific content found in their state curriculum standards. As with the rest of the C3 Framework, Dimension 2 is focused on moving beyond knowledge of dates, facts, formulas, and places on a map. Instead, the goal of the disciplinary concepts and tools outlined in this dimension is to engage students in critical inquiry within their respective disciplines.
In this webinar, you will hear content experts Peter Levine (civics), Phillip VanFossen (economics), James Hauf (geography), and Elaine Carey (history) discuss what disciplinary inquiry looks like in their respective disciplines.
