Learners, aka Detectives and Secret Agents, will engage in a weekly sleuthing adventures. We will read detective novels, watch spy movies, study costuming techniques, learn cryptograms, and solve age appropriate mysteries. Every learner's input is valued, and I encourage learner directed topics. Our class will involve group discussion, interactive team work, sharing, and problem solving games. We will decide, weekly, as a group, which movies, books, and games we will discuss. Week of July 4...
Students will practice and enhance the following skills: reading, communication, team building, cryptography, investigative research, writing, costuming and problem solving. We will discuss movies and books, solve puzzles, and play games.
I teach Get a Clue, a live action mystery game based on the 1940's board game, Clue, here at Outschool. I also enjoy teaching, reading, and writing mystery stories for on-line zines and young adults. I teach sewing and historical costuming, and I am currently creating a detective costume for this class. In my spare time, I set up live Clue games and escape rooms for my two daughters and their peers. My degree in Comparative Literature and Languages helps me create international spy adventures, escape rooms, and cryptograms. I have an M.Ed. in K-12 curriculum with a Special Needs strand.
Homework is not required for this class.
Please, bring a pencil and paper to keep track of clues, cryptograms, book and movie suggestions. The old fashioned detectives always kept a pencil and a small notebook handy in their pocket to write down their ideas, inspiration, and any clues they found whilst they investigated. Happy sleuthing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This is an ongoing club. Progress will not be assessed.
