Shenandoah University’s Division of Education & Leadership currently offers special programs to further enhance student learning.
For over 32 years, the Children’s Literature Conference at Shenandoah University has been striving to share with teachers and librarians the best that children’s literature has to offer.
The mission of the Shenandoah Valley Writing project is to improve both writing instruction and the use of writing as a tool to enhance learning in all content areas, PreK-University. We strive to elevate teachers to teacher-leaders and to raise the professional stature of classroom teachers. We also support and enhance the literacy of our surrounding area through programs for both young writers and adults in addition to our work with practicing educators.
Claude Moore Center for Literacy (CMCL)
A grant from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation of Fairfax, VA., enabled Shenandoah University to establish the Claude Moore Center for Literacy in the Bowman Building at the School of Education and Leadership at 20 South Cameron Street in downtown Winchester. The purpose of the center is to promote literacy in the region through providing community outreach, and by training current and future teachers in best practices in teaching reading and writing.
The Center will house a collection of traditional and electronic materials, adaptive technology and software for university students, teachers, children and their families.
