Met with Copy Center to go over scanning projects
Organized 1/2 day with 6-8 team.
Began reading C3 Framework, takeaways include:
The C3 Framework1 is centered on an Inquiry Arc—a set of interlocking and mutually supportive ideas that frame the ways students learn social studies content.
Content is critically important to the disciplines within social studies, and individual state leadership will be required to select appropriate and relevant content.
Reflecting the shared responsibility for literacy learn- ing put forward by the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/ Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects the C3 Framework fully incorporates and extends the expectations from the grades K–5 English Language Arts standards and the grades 6–12 standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.
The C3 Framework begins with two narrative explanations: the Inquiry Arc, which provides the organizing structure for the document; and the Overview of English Language Arts/Literacy Common Core Connections, which highlights the important relationship between the C3 Framework and the Common Core State Standards for ELA/Literacy. Next, the C3 Framework presents the following four Dimensions: 1 Developing questions and planning inquiries; 2 Applying disciplinary concepts and tools; 3 Evaluating sources and using evidence; and 4 Communicating conclusions and taking informed action. The C3 Framework closes with five appendices.
C3 has limits and didn’t take into account many factors.
Questioning is key to student learning. The C3 Framework encourages the use of compelling and supporting questions, both teacher- and student-gen- erated, as a central element of the teaching and learning process
