Product Description
Can your students decide who Jack the Ripper was out of a cast of 12 suspects?

In this lesson they will compare and evaluate 12 possible suspects before deciding on the most likely guilty person. They will then justifying their decision both verbally and in writing. The lesson works as a knockout tournament, comparing two suspects at a time. They must apply the background information presented to them along with the suspect cards to come up with the most plausible answer.

It is great for developing higher order thinking skills especially when they have to tease out the strengths and weaknesses of each suspect. It also provides me with some fabulous display ideas using the students work!

The lesson contains:
- 23 slide powerpoint.
-12 Suspect Information cards (on the powerpoint to be printed off in handout mode and cut out - they are in colour and also black and white versions to help you save some ink!)
- Information handout sheet ont he five acknowledged victims of Jack the Ripper.
- 3 page detailed lesson plan.
- Tournament structure handout sheet (also on powerpoint in colour and black and white)

The last task is to write a paragraph, if you would like a framework for this you might like to check out my 'P.E.E.L. PARAGRAPH LITERACY MATS Click here

The lesson is does not contain any graphic imagery, all photos of the victims are from when they were alive. But the written content on the victims, being as it is about a serial killer, is a bit gory. So I recommend this for high school more than middle school.
