DUBAI, UAE, 12 April 2018 – KDSL Global today released a paper which examines the implementation of the College, Career, and Civic Life Framework for Social Studies State Standards, known as the C3 Framework in the USA and in the MENA region. The C3 Framework prepares young people for College, Careers, and Civic life. Formed by the core disciplines of civics, economics, geography, and history, it is composed of deep and enduring understandings, concepts, and skills from these disciplines with emphasis of skills and practices as preparation for democratic decision-making. American curriculum schools have been engaged with these standards for a few years. KDSL Global is a USA and UAE-based leading learning organization focused on empowering educators and education businesses globally.

Kevin Simpson, KDSL Global Managing Director stated, “Schools, leaders, and educators are working to implement the C3 Standards. KDSL Global felt it was time to spotlight implementation in both the states and the MENA region to create more awareness around these standards.” He co-wrote the paper with Kim O’Neil, who served as the 2015-2016 President of the National Council for the Social Studies. She sits on the Commissioner’s Content Advisory Panel for the New York State Social Studies Education Department. O’Neil is a National Board Certified Teacher having spent her teaching career at the elementary and middle school levels.

The paper features a list of C3 resources and results from a survey that would provide data regarding the implementation process in the USA. Questions educators and leaders responded to ranged from impression of the standards, timeline, professional development, and more.
