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.

food helped to make the difference

These x-rays from the 1920s demonstrate the differences between children developing normally and those who develop rickets. The title of the black and white image is “Food Helped to Make the Difference.” There are four x-rays. The top set shows x-rays of the legs of a healthy five month old child on the left and the x-ray on the right shows the legs of a thirteen month old child with severe rickets. That child’s legs are described as having bending bones and spreading joints. Below, in the second set, the x-ray on the left shows the legs of a healthy three year old. The x-ray on the right shows the legs of another three year old child with healed rickets. This child is described as having bent, thickened bones with enlarged joints. The caption at the bottom of the image says, “X-rays show how an unbalanced diet may deform the bones of growing children.”
