College, Career and Civic Life standards webinars
Okay. Let’s be honest. Sitting through most live webinars is almost never a good time. Usually stuff you might find somewhere else. Simple talking heads. Poor production quality. Sitting through an archived webinar is only marginally better – for no other reason than you can fast forward through it.
But . . . there are some that are useful and practical – even if some of those other things are present. The NCSS C3 Framework webinar series is one of those.
The College, Career, and Civic Life Framework for Social Studies State Standards was developed to serve two audiences: for states to upgrade their state social studies standards and for practitioners — local school districts, schools, teachers and curriculum writers — to strengthen their social studies programs.
The objectives of the Framework are to:
- enhance the rigor of the social studies disciplines
- build critical thinking, problem solving, and participatory skills to become engaged citizens
- align academic programs to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies.
These free recorded webinars will help you learn more about the C3 Framework and the instructional shifts needed to help you move kids towards becoming effective citizens and historical thinkers.
So if you’re looking to find out more about the NCSS national social studies standards and what they can look like in practice, these webinars can help:
