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.

A tiered assignment

As a culminating assignment for their study of North Carolina, a fourth-grade class at Baileywick Elementary was given a project designed to combine map skills, writing skills, thinking skills, and research skills, and to review what the students had learned about the state. Each of the three fourth grade classes was assigned one of North Carolina's regions — the mountains, Piedmont, or coast.
