Hammond, Thomas C.; Oltman, Julia; Salter, Shannon – Social Education, 2019
The social studies curriculum travels through time and space and is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. To an outsider, the social studies curriculum is a single line on a program of studies, 45 minutes of a student's school day. Those on the inside, however, know that the field covers history, geography, civics, economics, and much…

Olbrys, Stefanie – Social Education, 2019
When the author encountered the C3 Framework, she saw an opportunity to develop a different approach that she hoped would encourage all her students to reach their highest potential.

Neumann, Dave – Social Education, 2019
Engaging emotion is essential to effective history instruction. This may strike some as a banal observation, as we have long known that student enthusiasm and engagement are key elements of learning.

However, social studies curricula rarely frame these…
