September 30, 2017: Literacy Live from the Underground Railroad

Have you ever traveled using the stars as your map or communicated by using patterns instead of words?  Come join us as LL participants travel back in time to learn about some of their bravest ancestors.  Through their eyes, they will see how travelers used special navigation and secret communication to plan their escapes.  Be sure to bring a patterned bed quilt if you have one at home too.  The fabric might have a secret message to reveal!  

During this event, learners will participate in different hands-on inquiry based activities as they make stories come to life and create visual codes to tell secrets!

CMC Partners with IBEC & WEC high schools to Adopt Robeson County Students

UNCW Curriculum Materials Center staff and the Isaac Bear and Wilmington Early College High Schools are working together to help Robeson County students affected by Hurricane Matthew.

Organizers are planning a series of drives throughout the academic year to assist students enrolled in West Lumberton Elementary School and Lumberton Junior High School. For the December drive, the group is collecting new scarves, hats and gloves along with new or gently used coats and 18-gallon storage totes through Dec. 16.

“We knew we couldn’t help everyone all at once so we focused on K-12 students living in storm-damaged homes or shelters in Lumberton,” said Kathryn Batten, Curriculum Materials Center and Education Coordinator at Randall Library. “The high school students at Isaac Bear and Wilmington Early College were on-board from the very beginning and quickly embraced the idea of adopting the Lumberton students in a more long-term fashion for the academic year.” 

During the storm, hundreds of Robeson County residents were rescued by swift boats, helicopter, military vehicles and small boats. Approximately 2,000 residents were housed in shelters with an estimated 7,000 structures being damaged by raging storm waters including the Public Schools of Robeson County administrative offices, West Lumberton Elementary School and W.H. Knuckles Elementary School. West Lumberton students are attending classes at the Lumberton Junior High School until repairs are completed at their school.

Drop boxes will be available at the Curriculum Materials Center (CMC), room 127 in Watson College of Education (EB127). Individuals can also send holiday cards to students and Robeson County employees.  Blank cards will be available at each drop box site.

Organizations, groups and churches interested in participating in the drive can email Batten at batten@uncw.edu to schedule a pick-up time.
