Browsing the shelves
Method books explain various teaching strategies; think of them as "how to" books for teachers. Many contain lesson plans that illustrate the recommended teaching strategies. Method books are listed in Onesearch and typically have a subject heading added such as language arts -- study and teaching (primary) or reading -- study and teaching (secondary).
