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 and 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 to enhance the rigor of K-12 civics, economics, geography, and history. It is also a vital resource for social studies practitioners at the local level to (1) enhance the rigor of the social studies disciplines, (2) build the critical thinking, problem solving, and participatory skills necessary for students to become engaged citizens, and (3) align academic programs to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies.
