PreK-12: What the C3 Framework Means (and Doesn't Mean) for Social Studies Product Development

Tuesday, October 06, 2015
2 PM - 3 PM


Event Overview

Given the climate around national standards in recent years and the furor over the Common Core it’s no surprise the announcement of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards in June 2013 came and went with comparably little fanfare. However, many states and districts have recently revamped their social studies guidelines, and most are using the C3 framework to inform their program revisions even if they haven’t formally “adopted” the framework. From increasing the rigor for alignment with new goals for college- and career-readiness to emphasizing what it means to be a global citizen, the C3 has important implications for educational product developers. During this webinar, which is part of our Master Class Series, you’ll get three different perspectives—an educator, a product developer, and an author of the C3 Framework—on why publishers should be paying attention.  


  • What the C3 Framework is
  • Why it was time for the new framework
  • What teachers need for the classroom
  • Where the opportunities are for your business


  • Aaron Willis, Chief Learning Officer, Social Studies School Service
  • Susan Griffin, Executive Director, National Council for the Social Studies
  • Alice Reilly, Ed. S., Coordinator PreK-12 Social Studies, Fairfax County Public Schools
