Sherlock Holmes 'A Study in Scarlet' Deduction and Inference Lesson
This is a complete lesson and can be used as a stand alone lesson for teaching deduction and inference skills, or as part of a SOW for teaching Sherlock Holmes. I have pitched it at a high ability Y9 group, however it could be easily differentiated to work well for any year group. The lesson looks at the opening where Holmes and Watson meet for the first time and asks, what do we learn about Holmes' character from the way the author describes him? Students will learn what deduction and inference is and practice these skills using the extract.
