About the Author:

Victor J. Moeller is an English professor at McHenry Community College in Illinois.

Marc V. Moeller teaches English at Prairie Middle School in the Barrington Community Unit School District in Illinois.

Review:

This book will be an excellent resource for principals and other administrators to read in order to get a picture of what is meant by "close reading" and ‘deep analysis of text’."

- Susan Gorman, Director of School Improvement, Osawatomie, KS

 

Practical, intuitive, and enlightening, this guide brings literature to life for students. Each chapter opens a path for students to unlock the meaning of literature for themselves. Moeller and Moeller’s application of the Socratic method invites true inquiry based on the soul of the human experience. Students are invited into lively, relevant, and serious discussions; at the end, participants can walk away with a deeper understanding of themselves.

- Vicki Agustsson, High School English Teacher, Bolingbrook, IL
