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.

Arched church walkway in Atotonilco, Mexico

Size: 709×1024

A series of stone arches support a covered church walkway. The floor of the walkway is made of close-fitting paving stones.

Atotonilco is a small village near San Miguel de Allende in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. The village is known as a spiritual center and boasts of a church constructed in 1740 that is famous for its very graphic depictions of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. The village expands every year for religious holidays as thousands of pilgrims descend upon the village to visit the church and its surroundings.
