Connecticut Social Studies Frameworks
The Connecticut Elementary and Secondary Social Studies Frameworks (CSSF) was created and written by a team of Connecticut social studies educators. The CSSF is guided by the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards, created by social studies experts and specialists throughout the United States. The Fairfield Museum has worked with the CT State Department of Education, the CT Council for Social Studies, UCONN Neag School of Education, and the CT League of History Organizations as well as other organizations to offer Professional Development and resources in order to implement the Connecticut Social Studies Frameworks. The C3 and CSSF has informed the Fairfield Museum’s educational programs and supports our mission to use history to strengthen community and help shape its future.
