K-12 Teaching and Learning From the UNC School of Education

Important Announcement about Online Courses and LEARN NC.

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.

Bubbling lava at Puu Oo Vent on Kilauea Volcano, HI

Size: 1024×698

Bubbling lava at Puu Oo Vent on Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located on the southeastern corner of the largest, youngest island of the Hawaiian Archipelago. The archipelago is located over 2,000 miles from the nearest continent, which has allowed Hawaii develop in geographic and biological isolation, and as a result, over 90% of its native flora and fauna are endemic to the state. These native species are being crowded and threatened by introduced species, making Hawaii the leading U.S. state for federally-listed endangered species and extinctions. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park contains the world’s most massive volcano, Mauna Loa (13,677 feet), as well as one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea Volcano, whose lava flows have added over 570 acres of land to the southern shore of the island and covered parts of the former highway with lava as deep as 115 feet.
