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.

The North Carolina Arts Council and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Program have teamed up to create this site which brings to the public a “unique series of Agri-Cultural Trails that offer a new and engaging way of touring the Old North State.”

From art galleries to “u-pick” farming operations, these self-directed driving trails can be found in 72 North Carolina counties. Currently there are trails in the counties of the foothills, the Piedmont, and the coast. Use the drop-down menus to find trails in each of the areas. Clickable maps also take the visitor to trails in specific counties. Click on a county map and a new map will come up on another page. By clicking the red dots for the towns and cities, you can find information about cultural and agricultural sites nearby. Information includes a description of the site, the physical address, phone number, email contact, hours of operation, and if available, a web address. The site also has a list of festival and fairs, things to do, and touring tips.
