Economics, U.S. History and the C3 Framework 

Learn how to integrate Economics into the C3 Framework using the Inquiry Design Model (IDM) from NCSS and lessons from Focus: Understanding Economics in U.S. History, focusing on four events: “Robber Barons: Crooks or Great Entrepreneurs”, “Civil Rights from Plessy (1896) to Ferguson, MO (2015+) and the “No Good 1970’s: Nixon to Reagan”.  Using these lessons teachers will meld the critical thinking skills of an “Economic Way of Thinking”, “Habits of Mind”, “Geographic Reasoning” and “Civic Participation” from the Framework and new State Mandates. 

Topics include: changes to the K-12 New York State Social Studies Standards, which are based on the new C3 “Inquiry Arc;” 64 inquiries found in the “Tool Kit” site; new assessments with multiple choice questions tied to documents/stimuli (charts, maps, cartoons, etc.; short response questions also tied to stimuli; and the new extended essay.
