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.

Carl Sandburg's home at Connemara in Flat Rock, NC

Size: 1024×768

This is Connemara, the former home of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Carl Sandburg. He and his wife moved to Flat Rock in 1945 and stayed for twenty-two years. The house is now managed by the Park Service. It preserves Sandburg’s belongings much as they were at the time of his death. Visitors can stroll across the grounds on over five miles of trails and can see a herd of goats that would have been much like the ones that Sandburg’s wife raised. Sandburg’s extensive book collection is still housed at Connemara, and it takes museum employees six full years to clean all of them. Cleaning prevents pests such as silverfish from damaging or destroying the books and other objects.
