This 5-page packet is an ideal activity to help students practice their close reading and comprehension skills--the questions are designed to help students make predictions, pay attention to small details, and reach conclusions based on evidence (just like Sherlock Holmes!). Following the packet is an answer key and suggested "pause points"--where you pause reading (preferably audiotape) and have the students answer the questions immediately after each passage. This in-class activity should take between 2-3 days.
