LEARN NC was a program of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Education from 1997 – 2013. It provided lesson plans, professional development, and innovative web resources to support teachers, build community, and improve K-12 education in North Carolina. Learn NC is no longer supported by the School of Education – this is a historical archive of their website.

LGBTQIA Resources for Educators


LGBTQIA Resources for Educators

LEARN NC and Safe Schools NC have partnered to create this collection of LGBTQIA resources for educators and students. Here you will find information on LGBTQIA vocabulary, school-related issues, classroom practices and lessons, bullying, and Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs). No matter what grade or subject you teach, we hope these resources will help you foster a safe and welcoming environment for LGBTQIA students, families, and coworkers.

If you have ideas or suggestions for resources we can add or areas on which you’d like us to focus, please email Kimberly Hirsh, managing editor for LEARN NC.
