What you will find inside:
The Boscombe Valley Mystery - story
This Sherlock Holmes adventure is part of the public domain. I’ve included a copy of the story with this resource for your use.

Mini Biography- Author Study
A short one-page researched biography has been included to help teachers introduce Sir Arthur Conon Doyle to students.

Stop N “Jot- Thinking, reflecting and questioning text
This is a fabulous activity that helps keep students focused on the reading. There are four pages devoted to stop ‘n jot. At the end of 2-3 pages students are to stop, think about what they’ve read and then jot down the main ideas, questions, thoughts and feeling they had as they read. Additionally, there is a space for students to sketch a picture to help them recall the story.

Vocabulary Words
Nineteen words from the story have been selected for further study. The words were based on necessity of understanding the story and the likelihood of students seeing the word again in other readings. Students will find the words in the reading, research the definition, and use the word correctly within a sentence.

Just the Facts – Sequencing
As Sherlock begins the case he organizes the information and shares with his sidekick Watson. Help students practice sequencing reading skills as they discover the facts of the case.

And the Murder Is….- Text Evidence
Sherlock investigates and unravels the case before the readers very eyes. He drops clues along the way that lead the reader to the murder. In this activity, students will collect the clues to solve the mystery right alongside Mr. Sherlock Holmes then use the evidence they’ve collected to complete a writing assignment.

An answer key is included for some portions of the reading guide. Activities that encourage creative and critical thinking will not have an answer key as more than one answer is appropriate.

All Middle School Café Short Story units are designed to help educators get the most out of each story and encourage students to engage in critical thinking. Reading guides are appropriate for both middle school and high school (depending on reading skill level).
