Grounded in disciplinary literacy, our projects seeks to bridge a partnership across the university and local school partners to offer innovative inquiry-based curriculum and professional development in the social studies.
Our work is aligned to the National Council for Social Studies C-3 Framework, Common Core Literacy Standards, and the North Carolina Essential Standards. More importantly, our inquiry-based curriculum is grounded in research in the field of social studies education and field-tested in real classrooms, with practicing teachers and a diverse array of students.
Through this project, We offer curriculum and resources designed and vetted in a collaboration between practitioners and researchers. Our lessons, assessments, and student activities are designed to improve student literacy, develop critical thinking skills, and create engaged democratic citizens- all critical goals of social studies education.
