Can you solve the mystery before the end of the book? Do you enjoy trying to look for clues and piecing the puzzle together? Can you catch the red herrings the author drops to throw you off track? This independent study on classic mysteries gives you a chance to dive in with the best of the best in plot twists and surprises! Get to know Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and discover for yourself why this iconic character is still intriguing fans today. Try to outsmart Agatha Christie if you can, but there’s a reason that her books are outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare!
Works to be covered and the student’s objectives and goals for the semester need to be approved by the teacher before the semester begins.
