    Instructional Framework 

    This is a research-based instructional model which offers a four-part structure to enhance  teaching and learning—Connect, Investigate, Synthesize, and Demonstrate. It was  developed in collaboration with a Participatory Design Committee of teachers and  Curriculum Supervisors, by Savvas Learning Company.

    "The model can be applied to print, digital, or blended instruction situations, providing  greater flexibility for teachers. It reflects the language of an inquiry or project-based  learning approach to Social studies. Most importantly, this model is student-centered  unlike most instructional models that are teacher-centered. This shift results in greater  student accountability and increased mastery of performance expectations and  state standards."
