Event Description

In 2013, the AHA, National Council for the Social Studies, and 13 other professional organizations collaborated to produce the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards. This online event was discussion about how the C3 framework was developed and implemented, how it affects the professional experiences of teachers, and how it continues to influence education policy amid a backlash against inquiry-based approaches.
