Strategies for Engaging Students with C3 and the Common Core
This webinar will focus on strategies that you can use to develop your lessons around the C3 Inquiry Arc and Common Core literacy and thinking competencies. Teachers will learn strategies that not only engage students, but also involve them in the inquiry process. We will use tools and concepts from the C3 Framework, while addressing the Common Core expectations for literacy. You will leave this webinar with number of research-based, practice-proven teaching strategies to use in your own classrooms.
