CQ Roll Call Daily Briefing Kelly represents the district that houses what The Washington Post labeled the ‘Sinkhole of Bureaucracy’ in Boyers, Pa. (Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call File Photo) There’s a nickname for news reports so provocative that readers are compelled to give them a literal shout out.

This fall, the new College, Career, Civic Life (C3) Framework is being released to help educators expand social studies and civic education in the K-12 classroom. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Teachers: Share your favorite project or lesson that helps you to engage students in civic learning and understanding and win a trip to the National Council for Social Studies conference (NCSS 2013) or an iPad Mini.
