Year 11 English – Reading and Writing
Friday, October 9, 2020
In Mr. Jake Smith’s year 11 classes, groups 11-1 and 11-2, they have been reading the book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. This story is an unusual detective story about a teenage boy with Asperger’s syndrome who investigates the death of his neighbor’s dog.
This week, we took a break from the book to learn more about detective stories in general and discussed the many different types of detective stories. We have read two examples of detective/mystery short stories in class.
Today, we read The Curious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Afterwards, the students began creating their own detective short stories.
