Product Description
These detailed 20 lessons are inspired by the Lucy Calkins/Teachers College Reading and Writing Project style. Each detailed lesson contains a connection, teaching point, active engagement, teach, and link.

I modeled this unit using Encyclopedia Brown Cracks the Case, but lessons are not specific to this and you have freedom to cater to your students' interests.

This unit is detailed. It scaffolds from being an introduction to mystery fiction into an analysis of mystery fiction. Unit includes suggestions to make lessons interactive with hands on mystery solving.

This unit covers the following topics:

Thinking like a detective
Main idea and details
Character analysis
Importance of rereading and reevaluating
Inferences
Sidekicks and secondary characters
Walk in the shoes of the character
Red herrings
Compare and contrast
Theme
Plot development
Writing opinion and supporting it with details
Life lessons
