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.

Known s "Frew’s Folly,", this plantation home is one of the finest examples of Federal period architecture in North Carolina. It was built in 1815 by Archibald Frew, a merchant, postmaster and tax collector. In the 1830s D. T. Caldwell and his family occupied the home. Dr. Caldwell had a medical practice as well as running the plantation. In 1985 the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina, Inc. purchased the house and eight acres and restored the home.

During a visit to Rosedale, students will be introduced to life in a plantation community, herbs and medicines, ante-bellum education and historic research. Students will also expand their knowledge of both local and North Carolina history. Pre-visit activities are provided for teachers to introduce the importance of local history to their students.
