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.

Orozco Mural in Guadalajara, Mexico

Size: 1024×709

A multi-colored mural adorns a stone wall. The mural depicts a stylized violent scene dominated by Nazi symbolism.

The mural’s artist is José Clemente Orozco (1883–1949). Orozco was a member of the highly-influential group of artists that emerged in Mexico after the violent upheaval of the Revolution (1910-1921). Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Orozco redirected Mexican artistic imagery to include scenes from Mexico’s past. Rivera and Orozco in particular often used the medium of al fresco painting on walls. This mural was painted on an interior wall of the Governor’s palace in Guadalajara.

Guadalajara was founded soon after the conquest of Mexico in the sixteenth century and has grown to be one of Mexico’s primary cities. It is the second largest city in Mexico, behind Mexico City, and is the industrial capital of the country. The city is famous for its manufacture of hardware and software for Mexico’s technology industry. It is also a popular tourist destination for its blend of colonial sites and modern conveniences.
