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.

family tree of the Tudor dynasty of England

Sizes available: 1024×800 | 250×195 | 450×352

Family tree of the Tudor dynasty of England, including kings and queens from Henry VII to James I. Under laws of primogeniture, a king was succeeded by his eldest son — unless he died without a son, in which case things got complicated. The order of succession was as follows:

  1. Sons, in order from eldest to youngest
  2. Daughters, in order from eldest to youngest
  3. Eldest and/or closest male relation of the current king

Since Edward VI and Mary I had no children, they were succeeded by their sisters. Elizabeth I also died without children, and made special arrangements so that James Stuart, King of Scotland, would succeed her as King of England. Without such advance arrangements, war could break out over the succession.

Kings and queens belong to a house — a family with a single name. Henry Tudor was the first king in the “House of Tudor.” James I was the first king of the House of Stuart.
