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.

Balinese woman weaves blue cloth on a mechanical loom

Size: 686×1024

A young Balinese woman in a yellow dress weaves dark blue cloth on a mechanical wooden loom.

Unlike Java, which is most famous for wax-resist painted batik cloth, Bali is known for various kinds of tie-and-dye patterned weavings called ikat which means “tie.”

Although originally made on backstrap looms from homegrown cotton, much of Bali’s woven cloth today is dyed with chemical dyes and manufactured in factories on mechanical looms in the eastern district of Gianyar.

Although some stages of contemporary textile production, such as design and chemical dyeing, may now be done by men, weaving is traditionally women’s work throughout Indonesia.
