Overall, I believe that any new professional engaging in information literacy instruction should read this text. I greatly appreciate Kaplowitz’s workbook because of its clear and organized instruction. While the name ‘tripod approach’ may seem just another piece of jargon, the ideas, theory, and experience behind it are both sound and useful to information professionals today.
— Currents in Teaching and Learning
Joan Kaplowitz's accessible book on instructional design provides practical insight for all librarians who teach. The Teaching Tripod approach, which is adaptable to a range of teaching situations, is a valuable resource for those who are reshaping and refining their information literacy instruction programs in the face of an evolving information literacy landscape, where the learners, the educational environment, and the information literacy models themselves are all changing.
