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.

Philosophy resources for educators

LEARN NC and UNC’s Department of Philosophy’s Philosophy Outreach Program have developed this collection of philosophical resources for educators. Here you’ll find tools and lessons to help you incorporate philosophical issues into your instruction. These resources include a “Philosophy 101″ guide for educators, links to exceptional web resources and lesson plans online, and a collection of LEARN NC lesson plans that you can easily modify to include philosophical elements. Whichever grade level or subject area you teach, you’ll find suggestions for making philosophy a part of your curriculum.

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.
