Lynbrook Public Schools delivers social studies instruction guided by the New York State Social Studies Framework through inquiry.  The Inquiry Arc is integrated into the NYS Framework. The C3 is built on the foundation of an inquiry arc, “a set of interlocking and mutually reinforcing ideas that feature the four Dimensions of informed inquiry in social studies:
(1) Developing questions and planning inquiries;
(2) Applying disciplinary concepts and tools;
(3) Evaluating sources and using evidence; and
(4) Communicating conclusions and taking informed action” (p17).


Teachers use a variey of materials to deliver content, books, videos, articles, websites, etc.
