Product Description
The C4 Framework has four elements – Collect, Collaborate, Create, and Communicate – that provide a structure for planning and implementing a instructional arc that supports high-quality social studies instruction in grades 5-12.

The Collect Element focuses on gathering and organizing information. The Collaborate Element encourages working together and pooling resources. The Create Element is all about constructing solutions and generating products. And the Communicate Element supports the telling of the story and sharing results.

We’ve created cards for each of the elements that provide practical and research-based strategies that you can use immediately as part of your instruction.

Each card highlights a specific strategy, website, or instructional tool designed to be implemented immediately. Every card is aligned to both the College, Career, and Civic Life standards from the National Council for the Social Studies and the Common Core State Standards for ELA & Literacy in History/Social Studies.
