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). Most method books for teaching foreign language are easily browsed on the 3rd floor in the call number area:
LB 1631 Language arts teaching (secondary) including writing, literature, grammar, etc.
LB 1632 Reading (secondary)d
LB 1576 Language arts (elementary)
LB 1573 Reading (elementary)
Lesson plans can be found using OneSearch; enter a topic such as language arts or reading in the first box and the word curriculum in the second box. Limit to Library Location using the options to the left of the results. Click on the Web Sites tab above for free online Lesson Plans.
Use interlibrary loan services to obtain copies of books which are not available at Sacramento State. Books requested via interlibrary loan take seven to ten days to arrive, so plan ahead!
