The Mystery Express Reading and Writing Club

Jessie McKeon
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(55)
In this ongoing, drop-in style club, every class is a fresh mystery to be solved. Drawing on classics such as Encyclopedia Brown and Agatha Christie, we will explore and create mysteries together.

Class experience

Learners will improve read-aloud, critical thinking, and problem solving skills and attain new skills in script and story analysis, dialogue, acting, and social interaction.
Not only am I a lifelong student of theatre, I have a deep love of radio mystery plays and short-form mystery dramas. I loved Encyclopedia Brown and Nancy Drew mysteries as a child, and have grown up to be an award-winning playwright in 10-minute mystery format. I design all of my instruction around first creating a safe space, and there is always room for new people in club-style classes. We are inclusive of all.
Some learners may want to have a notebook or paper and a pen or pencil. The teacher encourages taking notes and collaborative research in order to solve the classic mysteries.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
As these are classic stories, there could be some slightly sexist or xenophobic overtones that will be discussed in the context of the time period and analyzed appropriately. Most mysteries will include some form of murder simply because that's what they are - mostly poisoning and gunshots. This is not a "favorite murders" style class - we approach all mysteries with the Agatha Christie touch, not modern sensationalism.
