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 dances Bumble Bee dance in yellow, blue, and silver costume

Sizes available: 636×1024 | 311×500

A young Balinese woman dances the “Bumble Bee” dance in a yellow, blue, and silver costume. Here she stands with her knees bent and moves her fingers and arms gracefully at shoulder height. She wears a golden crown and stares straight in front.

The Bumble Bee dance is a modern addition to the Balinese dance repertoire. It was created in 1952 by a choreographer called Mario, and became a favorite of tourist audiences. Now it is performed as a love duet with a male bee courting a female bee. As the name suggests, the movements and music are very fast-paced.
