Beverley E. Crane's How to Teach: A Practical Guide for Librarians is the perfect bridge between learning theory and the practical application of these pedagogical models on lesson plans, templates, self-paced instruction, and many other methods of adult learning. The detailed models created for librarians in many settings-special, school, academic, and public-allow the use of theoretically sound technologies and strategies to be implemented with confidence. This book is an indispensable guide for novice and expert alike. -- Anne Caputo, 2010 president, Special Libraries Association and retired executive director, Knowledge & Learning Programs, Dow Jones & Company
