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.

For the past 25 years, UNC-Wilmington has provided ocean education and marine environmental education programs for school groups, all of which are correlated to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The Marine Explorers and Coastal Encounters programs are designed for teachers to bring their students to the UNCW Center for Marine Science (CMS). Programs are tailored to the age of the students. These include salt marsh expeditions, boat trips on the research vessel The Cape Fear, beach studies, lectures and hands-on lab work.

"MarineQuest also has Coast to Classroom programs which are designed to bring a taste of the NC coast to school classrooms. MarineQuest instructors bring a selection of local animals, give a short presentation about the areas in which they are found and their adaptations, and field questions about the ocean from students."

MarineQuest is located at the UNCW Center for Marine Science, 5600 Marvin Moss Lane, in Wilmington, North Carolina. For more information, contact MarineQuest at 910-962-2386 or marinequest@uncw.edu.
