“Memorizing names and dates has failed us.” – S.G Grant (one author of the C3)
If you haven’t heard about the C3, or don’t understand how these new Social Studies Standards impact your library program, then this webinar is made just for you. In this webinar, Instructional Focus Editor for School Library Connection magazine Paige Jaeger explained the new National Social Studies Standards in an easy-to-understand way and model how your library research projects should change to align with the new standards. She showed how to move beyond names and dates and begin operating under the Arc of Inquiry. This makeover to your program will ensure that your students graduate ready for College, Career, and Civic (C3) life.
Paige shared how to:
- Gather new ideas for aligning and repackaging social studies research projects for our next-gen students
- Assess whether your current projects are aligned with the new Social Studies Standards focus
- Weave technology into projects for higher level thought and seamless use in packaging learning adventures
Gain an understanding of the goals of the C3 and how repackaging social studies content into research endeavors meets the objectives of the standards. Paige shared examples of content repackaging as well as how inquiry and a strong library collaboration can help your social studies programs solve “real world issues” while learning history.
This session is designed for K12 teachers, librarians, administrators, and writers as well as anyone wanting to improve their understanding of the new standards and embrace changes for the 21st century learner. Now more than ever, we need students who can discern truth from fiction and make informed decisions. Let’s equip them by embracing the C3.
