Curriculum Materials @ Falvey Memorial Library

The Curriculum Materials Collection (CMC) at Falvey Memorial Library supports the education curriculum of Villanova University, particularly the methods and practicum courses, and K6-12 and young adult literature courses taught here. The CMC makes readily available for inspection, evaluation, and use educational materials of the highest quality produced for use with children from sixth through twelfth grades, and adult basic education materials when appropriate to the curriculum.  Priority is given to materials which most directly support course work preparing students to meet requirements of education degrees and credentials.  The CMC may also provide patrons with materials relating to the teaching profession, as well as personal and staff development.
