More Than Just Whodunit - Using a Mystery Story to Motivate Tenth-Grade Students to Read

byWilliam S. Lewis
This curriculum unit would be useful to high school teachers of English or social studies in the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. There are possibilities of examining the Cheyenne Indian culture, the Lenape Indians, many aspects of Philadelphia, including its neighborhoods, its historical institutions, its cultural and governmental institutions, as well as its wealth of public art in the form of its parks, fountains and sculptures all in the context of an enjoyable mystery story.
