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.

Once the assembly area for test missiles, this building now houses the Topsail Island Museum. It exhibits many permanent displays concerning OPERATION BUMBLEBEE, the U.S. Missiles project that operated on Topsail Island during the 1940’s. The exhibits include a color video of actual missile firings during that time, models of the rockets of those days, and one of the original rockets which washed ashore in 1994 near the site of the original launch pad.

The museum displays artifacts and exhibits from prehistory to the present, including descriptions of early Indian life on the island and exhibits concerning pirate activity which centered on and around Topsail Island during the early colonial days.

The Topsail Island Museum is run by volunteers and is open April through October on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 2 to 4 PM. For large groups, or to visit during the remainder of the year, call the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism at (910) 329-4446 to schedule private showing with a docent.
