Bringing the Great War Home

Bringing the Great War Home: Teaching with the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery

LEARN NC is proud to announce the release of a series of four interactive digital books in partnership with the American Battle Monuments Commission and Virginia Tech. Available for download via iBook or directly available on the ABMC website, this guide includes lesson plans and ideas developed by teachers to help students better understand the service, experience and sacrifice of Americans that served and died during the Great War. These lesson plans and lesson ideas cover a range of topics that can be applied in various subject areas, such as history, art, math, and English. Ten teachers form North Carolina and Virginia share the hands-on curriculum they created based on a year of professional development culminating with a visit to the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, France. Visit the LEARN NC website to learn more about the project, including how Cary, NC middle school teacher Katie Gulledge used narrative inquiry to explore her own great-grandfather’s experience as a soldier in World War I.

America on the World Stage

LEARN NC recently released an iBook adaptation of the America on the World Stage Digital Library. The teaching kits in the library reframe the teaching of American history in a global context. The collection includes essays approaching fundamental topics and events in United States history from an international perspective, emphasizing how the development of the United States has always depended on its transactions with other nations for commodities, cultural values, and populations. Teaching kits include lesson plans, presentations, and handouts for use with students.

LEARN NC has partnered with The Walking Classroom program, an in-school obesity intervention that promotes health literacy and develops and supports lifelong fitness habits for all students while addressing different learning styles.

LEARN NC and The Walking Classroom have published a sampler of 10 podcasts, along with standards-aligned accompanying lesson plans. The podcasts address a variety of topics including narrative poetry, famous scientists, and social justice movements.

“We are thrilled to work with LEARN NC,” said Laura Fenn, co-founder and executive director of The Walking Classroom Institute. “With the free podcast and lesson plan downloads available on the LEARN NC site, teachers will be able to test drive the program and see if The Walking Classroom suits their needs and the needs of their students.”

Fenn added, “Getting fresh air and physical activity while learning benefits everyone, but for some students with non-traditional learning styles, participating in The Walking Classroom provides the opportunity to learn in a way that is most effective for them.”

The Walking Classroom sampler is available at http://www.learnnc.org/lp/editions/walking-classroom.

LEARN NC’s July update

Greetings from LEARN NC!

We hope that you’re having a wonderful summer!

At LEARN NC, we are busy offering Common Core professional development and preparing new fall resources for you and your colleagues! Highlights of the projects we are working on this summer include: an educators’ guide to Election 2012, a podcast series for teachers, a guide for pre-service teachers using LEARN NC resources, and re-launching Instructify!

As mentioned in last month’s newsletter, we are offering a series of three-week online professional development courses focused on the Common Core State Standards and NC Essential Standards. This course provides teachers with an overview of the new Common Core and Essential standards and allows teachers to work alongside LEARN NC’s Common Core specialists to rework a unit of study that aligns to the new standards. The next course begins July 27th and registration is currently limited to 22, so register now! In addition to these exciting new resources for Common Core, we are also providing a number of other courses open for enrollment. Visit our course page for registration.

As you and your colleagues align your lessons to the new Common Core standards, keep LEARN NC in mind. We are one of the few organizations that have aligned all of our resources to the new Common Core and NC Essential Standards. Not sure where to start? Just go to our Common Core standard page and find the subject/grade that you are teaching. Under each objective for that grade level, you will find a link labelled “Find aligned resources.” After clicking that link, you will find all of the LEARN NC lessons that meet that goal. Easy as pie! For those of you who teach subjects outside of Math and English Language Arts, don’t worry! We have also aligned all of our lessons to the new Essential Standards, which can be easily explored through our Essential Standards main page.

Check out the Kenan Fellows page to view the fellows’ newly posted lessons. Next month, we’ll be posting lessons developed by teachers who recently attended an NCCAT seminar and a collection of resources to help teachers, administrators, and parents of elementary students better understand the new standards for Mathematics.

To keep up with our exciting work, follow us daily on Twitter and Facebook. We’ll keep you updated on our projects and educational trends. And, don’t forget to check our weekly trivia. Winners will be entered into a drawing for a free LEARN NC online professional development course.

Keep enjoying summer!

Best,
The LEARN NC Team

LEARN NC’s June update

Greetings from LEARN NC!

As the school year comes to a close, we know that you are eagerly anticipating your summer break! At LEARN NC, we are busier than ever developing resources that will help you and other K-12 teachers prepare for next year and the new transition to the Common Core standards.

Before you pack-up your classroom for the summer, be sure that you are following us on Twitter and Facebook. Not only are we sharing educational resources, but we’re hosting weekly North Carolina trivia. Check it out!

In our last update, we shared that all of our online lesson plans are now aligned to the new Common Core and NC Essential Standard objectives. We are excited to share that, as of this month, you can now find LEARN NC resources by searching the Common Core and Essential Standard objectives: just click on the “Find aligned resources” link below each standard. As you and your colleagues begin planning your year, we hope that you will use these helpful resources. For those of you who teach subjects outside of Math and English Language Arts, never fear! We are one of the few organizations who have also aligned all of our lessons to the new Essential Standards, which can be easily explored through our Essential Standards mainpage.

In addition to these new lesson plans, we have also developed a three-week online professional development course focused on the Common Core State Standards and NC Essential Standards beginning June 27th. In this course, we will provide teachers with an overview of the new Common Core and Essential standards and allow teachers to work alongside LEARN NC’s Common Core specialists to create or rework a unit of study that align with these new standards. Registration is currently limited to 22 and we predict that the demand will be high, so register now!

In addition to these exciting new resources for Common Core, we are also providing a number of other courses open for enrollment. Visit our course page for registration.

We are also continuously building our online lesson plan database through recent partnerships with the Carolina Digital Library and Archives (CDLA) and the Kenan Fellows Program. In collaboration with the CDLA’s new Commemorative Landscape Database, a growing digital collection of essays, photographs, and primary resources related to commemorative sites in North Carolina, we have developed resources that provide K-12 teachers with opportunities to explore and teach North Carolina history, research skills, and the reading of primary documents through this unique digital database. Additional lessons will be available July 1st and will be added continuously throughout the fall and spring of the next school year, so keep checking in!

Lastly (we told you we’ve been busy), we are currently accepting applications for LEARN NC’s new Executive Director. We invite top-notch educators to apply!

We hope that you have a great summer and come back to us as you and your colleagues start planning your upcoming year!

All the best,

LEARN NC Staff

Update from our director

Greetings!

We at LEARN NC hope you each are enjoying the springtime weather and that your school year is finishing strong. We have been quite busy ourselves, adding new resources, lesson plans, and courses to our collection — some of which are shared below. We’re also busy adding — people! That’s right; LEARN NC is hiring. So, if you are energetic, innovative, passionate about education, and want to live in one of the coolest towns in America, visit the UNC jobs website and apply today:

Standards: Common Core & North Carolina Essential Standards
LEARN NC offers thousands of lesson plans already aligned to the Common Core Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts and to the NC Essential Standards in other subject areas — and we are aligning more each day. We are in the process of making these lessons available from the Common Core and NC Essential Standards area of our website. For example, you can go into third grade social studies and click on the “Find aligned resources” link to find lessons plans for each of the strands. Soon, all Common Core and Essential Standards strands will have this link, allowing you to search for resources according to all the new standards
Lesson Plans: Commemorative landscapes
LEARN NC is partnering with the History Department and the University Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to encourage critical inquiry into the construction and revision of North Carolina’s history through an examination and study of North Carolina’s monuments, markers, and other commemorative landscapes. The lessons plans being developed facilitate student engagement with primary documents and digital media to promote a broader understanding of North Carolina history, familiarity with historical discourses and practices, and thoughtful approaches to research. For example, did you know that the Edenton Tea Party meeting in North Carolina has been referred to as “the earliest known instance of political activity on the part of women in the American colonies?” Visit LEARN NC in May to experience our digital narrative of the Edenton Tea party using a collection of primary documents from the Commemorative Landscapes database and examine how the event has been commemorated across North Carolina.
Research: The Well
If you haven’t visited The WELL yet, come see how the research being conducted here by our colleagues in higher education is having immediate impact, right now, on education in our classrooms. Recent articles and videos deal with issues such as: engaging parents in urban communities, creating a “commonplace” book to support pedagogical reading, and a longitudinal study on the positive effects of high quality early childhood education.
Courses enrolling now!
As you make your summer plans, consider joining the thousands of teachers across North Carolina who have taken one of our engaging, relevant online continuing education courses. This summer’s offerings are organized according to the following three clusters:

  1. Beginning teachers/Pedagogical development
  2. Teaching diverse populations
  3. Integrating Common Core — including Algebraic Thinking in Elementary Schools, Developing Your Classroom Management Plan, Teaching Writing in Middle Schools, and Embedding Gifted Strategies into AP Instruction.

Each content area course we offer has Common Core-aligned resources embedded within to help you with your transition. And, of course, our Carolina On-Line Teaching (COLT) certification program is preparing the next generation of K-12 teachers to extend their abilities and reach into the world of online teaching themselves. Visit the COLT site to join our next cohort. NOTE: Ask us about how our Invest in Teachers program can help make our courses even more affordable for you!
