The College, Career, and Civic Life Framework, a document released Tuesday by National Council for the Social Studies, offers states a set of guidelines to follow when setting standards in social studies. The C3 framework -- the result of a three-year study by teachers and subject-matter specialists from 22 states -- focuses not on curricular content for civics, economics, geography and history but describes disciplinary concepts and skills through "dimensions," including the development of questions and inquiries, applying disciplinary tools and concepts, evaluating sources, communicating conclusions and taking informed action.
