C-3 Framework For Social Studies Released

The C-3 Framework for Social studies has been released by The National Council of Social Studies (NCSS). I am currently looking at the document now and will have some summaries coming soon. Truth In American Education is also reviewing it and I will include what they find as well.

This is a cut and paste directly from the introduction of the “College, Career and Civic Life C-3 Framework:

IN THE COLLEGE, CAREER, AND CIVIC LIFE (C3) FRAMEWORK FOR SOCIAL STUDIES STATE STANDARDS, THE CALL FOR STUDENTS TO BECOME MORE PREPARED FOR THE CHALLENGES OF COLLEGE AND CAREER IS UNITED WITH A THIRD CRITICAL ELEMENT:
PREPARATION FOR CIVIC LIFE. ADVOCATES OF CITIZENSHIP
EDUCATION CROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM, BUT THEY ARE
BOUND BY A COMMON BELIEF THAT OUR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC WILL NOT SUSTAIN UNLESS STUDENTS ARE AWARE OF THEIR CHANGING CULTURAL AND PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENTS; KNOWTHE PAST; READ, WRITE, AND THINK DEEPLY; AND ACT IN WAYS THAT PROMOTE THE COMMON GOOD.
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DIFFERING PERSPECTIVES ON THESE OBJECTIVES. THE GOAL OF KNOWLEDGEABLE, THINKING, AND ACTIVE CITIZENS, HOWEVER, IS UNIVERSAL.

 

Uh, welcome to Oceania?

 

REMINDER:

Last month, I posted information about the NCSS conference to be held in November.  Some of the sessions they are holding are, to be kind, interesting. For example, one of the first ones I spotted was “Regrounding” Social Justice through the Rule of Law. Come again?

Other sessions to be held include Islamic studies containing lessons on Jihad and Sharia (but no Christian or Jewish), Pre-k ‘history’ through literacy, climate change and Historic “narrative” memorization — specific example cited was Newtown.  There is even a session in recognizing ‘media bias’ being led by a teacher in Ohio named Edwin Gallatin who supported Occupy – with specific support for Occupy Cleveland.

Gallatin has his own version of media bias:

GO REVIEW THE WHOLE LIST.
