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.

guinea corn growing in Nigeria

Sizes available: 355×558 | 180×283

“Guinea corn” is a name for durra, a grain traditionally grown in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and southern Europe. It was typically ground into meal and made into bread. It is also known as Indian millet, African millet, or pearl millet.

Guinea, now the name of a west African nation, is also a traditional term for the entire region of West Africa.

The photographer, Harry Marshall, notes:

A few weeks before this field of guinea corn would have been dusty and barren. But when the rains arrived guinea corn and other plants grew so fast you could note the progress daily.
