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.

Founded in 1952, the Rocky Mount Children’s Museum (RMCM) was one of the nation’s first children’s museums. It offers a variety of exhibits featuring topics on physical sciences, natural and biological sciences, planetary and space sciences, and early childhood development. Each of the exhibits encourages critical thinking. After sustaining damage from hurricane Floyd, the museum had to operate out of a temporary location. Now it resides in the new Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences, a 150,000 square foot complex created in the old Imperial Tobacco Factory.

A visit to the new state-of-the-art digital SciDome™ planetarium is a must. Opening in January of 2006, the new planetarium will seat 56 visitors and will provide day and evening programs.
