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)
