Here is how I start my unit on Detective stories which leads us to the study of « The Speckled Band », a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle.
But let’s first concentrate on the writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and then on the famous detective and his symbols!
Studying the biography before the short story itself helps our students understand that before becoming a writer, he was a doctor – hence his characters such as Dr Watson.
I provided a page with the answers to help you.
I hope you’ll like these documents as much as my students did.
