The Teaching Resources Center provides instructional materials, equipment, and services that support the students, faculty, and staff of the UNCG School of Education as well as teachers in the Triad community.
The TRC serves as a model school library media center, offering a large collection of Pre-K-12 picture books, young adult fiction, nonfiction books, audiobooks, board books, big books, kits, manipulatives and DVD’s. We also have professional resources useful in preparing lesson plans, teacher’s editions of state adopted textbooks, and Praxis study guides.
