  1. The “motherload” of resources focused on Inquiry – C3teachers.org. Hopefully, this website will help you use the standards rather than having them simply be “an elf on the shelf.”
    1. This link brings you directly to the Inquiry Development Model – which should help teachers create inquiry units.
  2. National Council for the Social Studies. (2013). The college, career, and civic life (C3) framework for social studies state standards: Guidance for enhancing the rigor of K-12 civics, economics, geography, and history.

  3. I meant to bring up this book during the podcast as it deals with getting students to ask their own questions. I found that the C3 website also recommends it. So, you should read it!
