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.

The World's Largest Ten Commandments and Testament

Size: 1024×682

These are the World’s Largest Ten Commandments and Testament. The concrete Testament is 30 feet tall and 50 feet wide, while the Commandments are written in five foot tall letters, also made of concrete. Started in 1943 and completed in 1945, the Commandments mark the spot where Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson had prayed and received a vision of a new church in the early 1900s. Later, he and followers whom he had converted started the Church of God of Prophecy. Today the mountainside, called Fields of the Wood, sports several other attractions, including the world’s largest altar, the world’s largest cross, a replica of Christ’s tomb, and an outdoor baptismal pool. Fields of the Wood is located in Murphy, North Carolina.
