K-12 Teaching and Learning From the UNC School of Education

LEARN NC was a program of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Education from 1997 – 2013. It provided lesson plans, professional development, and innovative web resources to support teachers, build community, and improve K-12 education in North Carolina. Learn NC is no longer supported by the School of Education – this is a historical archive of their website.

The Previous North Carolina Standard Course of Study

The previous version of the NCSCOS is no longer being taught in schools, but we will leave the Standards Matrix here until the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year to help teachers who are using crosswalks to align their old lessons to the new standards.
