Civic Education Consortium

The NC Civic Education Consortium (also called Carolina K-12) is part of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Program in the Humanities & Human Values and works to extend the resources of the University to North Carolina’s K-12 educators. The CEC offers quality professional development programs which include access to scholars on key topics, innovative lesson plans, and interactive pedagogical training.

Below are lessons developed for the CEC about language diversity in North Carolina. The materials, stemming from Talkin’ Tar Heel by Walt Wolfram and Jeffrey Reaser, are available in PDFs, and are intended for students in the 8th grade.
