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.

Ramayana mural sheltered under portico at Emerald Buddha Temple in Bangkok

Sizes available: 698×1024 | 341×500

Sequential scenes from the Ramayana story are painted on mural walls sheltered under columned porticos at the Emerald Buddha Temple in Bangkok.

Pilgrims and tourists can walk around the shaded gallery halls viewing the hundreds of paintings that visually convey a Thai version of the ancient Indian epic.

This Thai version of the Ramayana was created between 1797 and 1807 under the writing supervision of King Rama I. Rama I founded the Chakri dynasty, the dynasty that still reigns and is profoundly influential in Thailand although their rule is allegedly ceremonial.

This image was photographed in August 1984.
