     Certificate  CERT 

  • Inquiry in the Social Studies Classroom and Beyond: Leading the Next-Generation Digital Citizens to Multiple Perspectives and Reliable Resources

    Encouraging students to think about "the big questions" is an important part of developing inquiry and building critical thinking skills. C3 is a powerful inquiry model that provides a framework for rigor and prepares students for college, career, and civic life.  Join Ryan Suskey from the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education as he demonstrates how teachers can implement the C3 framework to help students become informed and responsible citizens through meaningful activities.  Attendees will learn about digital resources and support tools from the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education and INFOhio that introduce multiple viewpoints and promote an inquiry framework that can be quickly adapted for use in multiple subject areas in the 3-12 classroom.
