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.

Former U.S. Embassy in Saigon and site of final helicopter evacuation in 1975

Sizes available: 1024×683 | 600×400

This former United States Embassy in Saigon, a multi-story building sided with reinforced white grillwork, was the site of the final U.S. helicopter evacuation at the end of the Vietnam War on April 30, 1975.

Although many Vietnamese linked to the U.S. army initially entered the Embassy compound for evacuation, on the last day an order was given to airlift only Embassy documents and American citizens.

Vietnamese who had worked many years for the U.S. Embassy or military were refused the helicopter evacuation service, thereby leaving them in the hands of North Vietnamese troops who killed most of them for allying with the U.S. enemy during the war.
