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.


Hot topics and special collections

Photographs, maps, paintings and posters span centuries and the globe. Audio recordings take you to North Carolina’s past, the woods and ponds outside your school, and the streets of Southeast Asia. And video brings you demonstrations, lectures, and animations that liven up a classroom or professional development workshop.

  • Look in the sidebar of our multimedia records to see where an image, audio recording, or video clip is used in context — a page of text where it’s embedded or a lesson plan designed around it.
