Additionally, it is meant for college and university teachers. However, the essays do not contain jargon that would put off an avid lay Harry Potter fan. Overall, this collection is an excellent addition to the growing analytical scholarship on the Harry Potter series; however, it is the first academic collection to offer practical methods of using Rowling's novels in a variety of college and university classroom situations.
