Webcast: The C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards: Implications for Civic Learning

The goal of social studies education is to develop responsible, informed, and engaged citizens to foster civic, global, historical, geographic, and economic literacy. The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards, released by the National Council for the Social Studies in 2013 was purposefully designed to meet this goal by providing guidance to states and local school districts to enhance the rigor of K-12 civics, economics, geography, and history.

This webcast features a lively discussion about the importance of preparing students for civic life - how the story of Mary Beth Tinker, the landmark 1969 Supreme Court Case Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District and the C3 Framework provide the inspiration and tools to prepare all students for effective citizenship in the 21st century.
