Education Curriculum Resources: Home

A collection of curriculum resources available at the Stafford Campus Library


Located in the north building of the Stafford Campus, the LearnerSpace of UMW’s College of Education is an experimental space created to foster collaborations between K12 students and educators. This space is designed to encourage the use of emerging technology tools that support creativity, innovation, and personal engagement within STEM fields

UMW Play Lab

The UMW Autism Clinic and Play Lab is a program run by the Special Education program at the University of Mary Washington’s College of Education.  The name UMW Play Lab was chosen because it is in fact a “lab” model for our UMW students to practice and receive training in working with children with ASD and related disabilities.

About this Guide

Welcome to the education curriculum resources guide for the University of Mary Washington.  These resources, located in the Stafford Campus Library, offer a growing collection of curriculum resources for K-12 instruction, including videos, assessment tests, Praxis test preparation books, a variety of education software programs, and a selection of juvenile and young adult literature.

These resources are open to the entire UMW community as well as local educators in the greater Fredericksburg area.
