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.

Preservice teacher education resources

LEARN NC is committed to developing high-quality educational resources for K-12 teachers.  We believe that our site also serves as a valuable resource for pre-service teachers designing instruction and teaching for the first time.  

In this collection, we have identified common themes taught in subject-specific Education Methods courses and created a collection of model lessons organized by subject area and grade level to facilitate student understanding of these topics.  On the grade and subject-specific pages in the chapters of this edition, you will find articles and model lesson plans that address topics commonly taught in your Methods course and aligned with the new Common Core and Essential Standard objectives.  

We hope that you’ll use some of these LEARN NC resources in your Methods courses this year!
