What is a Crime Scene Decoder Skill Builder?
In a Crime Scene Decoder Skill Builder, students work in teams or individually to solve 10 problems that increase in difficulty relating to a specific language skill. After each answer they will receive a clue. Similar to the popular reality TV show Whodunnit or the board game Clue, there will be a fictional theft of a famous manuscript, in this case "Ain't I a Woman". The goal is to determine the thief, the scene of the crime and the method.

Sentence Types with "Ain't I a Woman"
In this Skill Builder, students demonstrate understanding of deciphering unfamiliar words and references, including allusions, with context clues using "Ain't I a Woman" by Sojourner Truth.

Also included are extension activities where students add interest to their writing by incorporating some of the new words they have learned either in a response to the text or as a piece of informative writing.

Included is an outline for how to implement the lesson, a student worksheet, the 10 "Clues" and an answer key.
