Using the Library Catalog

Use the library on-line catalog to locate books relevant to your topic.

Unless you know the title and/or author of the book you are looking for,  research topics should be searched by Keyword to maximize the number of references for a topic.   You can use more than one keyword at a time.  For example, the search string "secondary instruction writing" yielded 18 results.  Another  search string,  "teaching writing secondary" yielded 41 results.   Many books will span elementary and secondary grade levels.  Other books focus on "rhetoric" --the teaching of composition at both secondary and postsecondary levels.  A subject search for "language arts" breaks down into 69 subcategories, including "Language Arts Secondary."
