Chapters in this part cover performance anxiety, taming teaching terror, preparing oneself physically, mental preparation, organizational preparation, and performance tempo. Part 2, "Composing Classes," discusses approaches to library classes themselves. The chapters in this part address a philosophy of library instruction, preparing the class outline, interaction versus structure, classroom dynamics, and learning from teaching.
