K-12 Teaching and Learning From the UNC School of Education

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.

Classroom arrangement

Cluster arrangement

The cluster arrangement is best suited for cooperative or collaborative work, where a small group of students works independently of the rest of the class but the students within the group interact frequently with one another.
