Directly from C3 Teachers:
Submissions are now being accepted for the C3 Teachers Inquiry Challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to support and reward social studies educators using the Inquiry Design Model™ (IDM). This challenge is co-sponsored by C3 Teachers and the Social Studies Assessment, Curriculum, and Instruction (SSACI) Collaborative, which is part of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
Together, we will award five $500 IDM Grand Challenge Awards and five $200 IDM Awards of Merit. Submissions are due by June 1, 2016 and winners will be announced by July 1, 2016. A complete inquiry must address all components of the IDM Blueprint. Inquiries will be submitted through the Inquiry Design Model Blueprint Generator™ (http://c3teachers.org/generator). Entries may be submitted individuals or educator teams.
Winning inquiries will be published on C3 Teachers and shared using a creative commons license with teachers across the U.S. and world.
