In both Freshmen English classes we have begun a unit on suspense and mystery. We will be reading a novel called "Don't Blame the Children" by Anne Schraff.
We will start with the vocabulary from the story, followed by reading the novel and doing associated classwork based on the novel.
After we complete the novel, we will view a related movie. There is no movie based on this exact story, so we will watch an interactive movie. It is titled "Clue" and is based on the board game. The students will get the opportunity to watch for clues as the movie plays and then at the end of it, they will "solve the murders befor ethey are revealed.
We will also play the board game to further the experience of being the sleuth!
