Praise for Teaching Fiction from the Inside Out:

"The Cana Classical Guide on Teaching Fiction from the Inside Out is a beautifully written statement on how to inspire students' hearts and minds. It is also a profoundly important work for us teachers that gives us practical direction and concrete examples in the soul-shaping art of exposing students to the beauty of great literature."

--Dr. Daniel Scoggin, co-founder, Great Hearts Academies

"Teaching Fiction from the Inside Out is stunning in its scope, elegance, and sensibility.  Drawing on her many years of experience in the classroom, Jeannette DeCelles-Zwerneman offers a master class in how to break open a text to students—from her vision of the centrality of proper imagination when reading literature to practical guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls in its teaching. This is a refreshing alternative to 'standards-based Language Arts' programs; indeed, the thorough treatment of the many textual examples 'makes us feel this life more deeply and keenly.'”

--Mary Faith Hall, head of school, Thomas MacLaren Charter School
