This is lesson #3 in the "Becoming Sherlock" series of one time classes (although they can be taken in no particular order). What makes the great Sherlock Holmes so great? Why, it is elementary, my dear Watson! In the "Becoming Sherlock" series of one time classes, students will learn to identify important details, decode, infer, identify foreshadowing, predict, and deduce.

I've always loved a great mystery! I've found great joy in watching or reading a mystery and trying to solve it within the first few minutes. As I have done this, I have found that some of the most important reading skills can be fine tuned through the trial and error of solving puzzles and mysteries. My goal is to help your students improve their reading comprehension and critical thinking skills while having fun.
I suggest a paper and something to write with.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
One of the last activities in class involves solving a crime. Although the material will not be graphic in nature, be aware that the topics of the crimes range from theft to murder.
Creating a love of learning through discovery!
