Important Message about LEARN NC

LEARN NC is evaluating its role in the current online education environment as it relates directly to the mission of UNC-Chapel Hill School of Education (UNC-CH SOE). We plan to look at our ability to facilitate the transmission of the best research coming out of UNC-CH SOE and other campus partners to support classroom teachers across North Carolina. We will begin by evaluating our existing faculty and student involvement with various NC public schools to determine what might be useful to share with you.

Don’t worry! The lesson plans, articles, and textbooks you use and love aren’t going away. They are simply being moved into the new LEARN NC Digital Archive. While we are moving away from a focus on publishing, we know it’s important that educators have access to these kinds of resources. These resources will be preserved on our website for the foreseeable future. That said, we’re directing our resources into our newest efforts, so we won’t be adding to the archive or updating its contents. This means that as the North Carolina Standard Course of Study changes in the future, we won’t be re-aligning resources. Our full-text and tag searches should make it possible for you to find exactly what you need, regardless of standards alignment.

More than 8,500 North Carolinians who served in World War II did not return. The National Archives has made available the complete lists of war casualties published in 1946:

Army and Army Air Force
The World War II Honor List of Dead and Missing Army and Army Air Forces Personnel from North Carolina lists all soldiers by county. The “tabulation” gives total numbers for each county.
Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard
The State Summary of War Casualties from World War II for Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Personnel from North Carolina does not list casualties by county, but includes the names of all personnel wounded in action.
