I haven’t posted one in awhile, so here is a lesson plan on the Crime and Puzzlement case “Made in Japan.”
This lesson opens, if you’re so inclined, with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on the term and concept of “star-crossed lovers.” You’ll need this scan of the text, illustration, and questions to conduct your investigation. And once you’ve gathered the evidence and analyzed, it, you’ll need the typescript of the answer key to check your detective work.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
