Foundations for C3 Inquiry and The Inquiry Design Model (IDM): Part One is now available for the certified teachers audience on the LMS.

Professor John Lee (North Carolina State University) and Professor Kathy Swan (University of Kentucky) give an overview of the inquiry-based C3 Framework for teaching social studies at all grade levels. They describe their Inquiry Design Model (IDM) as a pedagogically logical blueprint for learning that begins with "compelling questions" to activate prior knowledge and stimulate interest in students. The IDM then takes students through skill-building "formative performance tasks" to the goal of constructing sound arguments in answer to compelling questions.
