Summary, etc.: "Library instruction is like acting on the stage: you play a role as the instruction librarian. There is a live audience, usually only there for the one-shot--that one performance. You may even receive reviews or evaluations. Or maybe the teaching experience feels more like an audition--a bit unnerving! We hope to demonstrate how acting techniques can sharpen your instructional skills and establish your teaching identity, enliven your performance, and create an invigorating (and stress-free) learning experience for your students"--Page vii.
