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 science  -- study and teaching  (primary) or biology -- study and teaching (secondary).  Most method books for teaching foreign language are easily browsed in the call number area:

Search Google Books

Google Books may be an option to find materials of use. However, I would suggest exhausting materials Sacramento State has in its collection before using Google Books.
