The C4 Framework is both philosophical and practical. Using the four elements – Collect, Collaborate, Create, and Communicate – to design your lesson and unit plans is critical to developing students who can think historically and solve authentic problems.

But the Framework goes beyond simply providing a theoretical structure for unit design. You need specific hands-on, real-life strategies. The C4 Framework does that too.

We’re busy creating cards for each of the four elements that provide practical and research-based strategies that you can use immediately as part of your instruction. Find out more about what cards are available for each element and download a free sample by going to any of the pages listed below:
