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.

World War I propaganda posters

Rivets are bayonets - Drive them home!

Men at home did have important work to do, though. Here, an industrial worker uses a rivet gun, perhaps in building ships or tanks for the army. “Rivets are bayonets,” the poster says — industrial work was just as important as military service.

Poster by: John E. Sheridan, 1917.
