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.

World War I Memorials
In this online course we study America's efforts to memorialize and mourn over 116,000 men and women who lost their lives while serving their country during World War I. We analyze local war memorials in cities and counties throughout America; then we turn to the design and function of military memorials that were erected on-site, at battlefields and cemeteries, in France and Belgium along the western front. By the end of the course you will understand the social and political context of commemoration and the role that physical memorials play in America's efforts to remember World War 1.
