Here is how I start my unit on Detective stories which lead us to the study of "The Speckled Band", a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle.
In this very first step, we concentrate on the writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and then on the famous detective and his symbols.
I provided a page with the answers, to help you.
Studying the biography before the short story itself helps our students understand that before becoming a writer, he was a doctor - hence his characters such as Dr Watson.
I hope you'll like these documents as much as my students did.
