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.

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!
