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.

Map depicting Hernan Cortes' conquest of Mexico from 1519 through 1521.

Size: 1300×649

This map represents the route Hernán(do) Cortés and his men followed during the Spanish Conquest of Mexico. Cortes and his men battled their way through Mexico from 1519 to 1521.

The Spanish Conquest of Mexico refers to the conquest of the Mexica/Aztec empire in particular. While the Yucatán Peninsula is part of modern-day Mexico, it was not part of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico.

Cortés was a member of the Spanish generation of conquistadors, a name referring to soldiers, explorers, and adventrures who were instrumental in the Spanish conolization of the Americas. Cortés, in particular, was a famous and particularly successful conquistador for Spain.
