Sherlock Holmes (Jigsaw Reading)


Topic: crime (funnily enough)

Skills: integrated (reading, writing (note-taking), listening (i.e. to each other- a vital skill in this activity), speaking)

Vocab: varied, but again generally crime words will help.

Advantages: minimal planning needed, easy to think up follow-up activities (see the GENERAL METHODOLOGY section), keeps classes occupied (and generally interested) for anything up to 3 hours.

The set contains general introduction. There's a summary and ideas for discussion accompanying every story.

The vague level division of the stories is as follows:

Elementary- Pre-Intermediate

1. Big Ben

2. The Brothers Van der Leet

3. The Count of Monte Cristo

4. The Arsenic Sonata


1. Amanita- The Destroying Angel

2. The Bank Manager of Finchley


1. Beau Geste

2. The 18:45 from Edinburgh
