In partnership with Dream of a Nation, a “people-centered initiative focused on big dreams, bold innovations, and realizing our full potential as a nation,” LEARN NC has developed a new, FREE, online professional development course. Through reading articles and watching videos by some of today’s most innovative and inspiring scientists, economists, environmentalists and others, participants will find materials aligned to both the North Carolina Essential Standards and English Language Arts Common Core Standards that will engage them and their students in empowering ideas.
The first offering of this self-paced, interactive online course begins on September 25 and runs through October 30, 2013. The course is for educators who teach eighth through twelfth grade environmental science, American history, civics and economics, and English language arts. Upon completion, participants will earn 2.0 CEUs. To enroll and view a full course description, visit the Dream of a Nation registration page.
