If you haven’t heard about the C3, or don’t understand how these new Social Studies Standards impact your library program, then this webinar is made just for you. In this webinar, Instructional Focus Editor for School Library Connection magazine Paige Jaeger explained the new National Social Studies Standards and modeled how your library research projects should change to align with the new standards. Learn how to move beyond names and dates and begin operating under the Arc of Inquiry. This makeover to your program will ensure that your students graduate ready for College, Career, and Civic (C3) life.
