Who better to show the usefulness of a well-asked question - and the importance of a clear and concise answer - than Sherlock Holmes?
This collection contains four of the best-loved Sherlock Holmes tales, in full reading comprehension format:
The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
The Adventure of the Red-Headed League
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Adventure of Silver Blaze
Each of the four books contains a full, original story, divided into ten short sections.
Following each section:
- Five questions to be answered separately in a student’s notebook
- Vocabulary, in alphabetical order, with definitions or synonyms (making the word comprehensible in the story’s context), from the chapter just read
- A ‘looking up close’ page, exploring one main theme of the section just read (with pictures)
Read one section of the book at a time. Use the vocabulary list to help with understanding the story (and practise looking things up in alphabetical order). Answer the questions in a separate notebook. Read the ‘looking up close’ page for fun. Enjoy a good, old-fashioned, Sherlock Holmes mystery!
