How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Holmes immediately suspects his client, the young and attractive Miss Morstan, of being a gold digger. Why is he so quick to jump to that conclusion? What factors influence your judgment of another’s character?

Even in the face of death, one character refuses to share the treasure, even if the money could benefit others. Why does he feel this way? Are his feelings justifiable?

Sherlock Holmes is the creation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. To learn more about this fictitious sleuth, www.sherlockian.net provides answers to every conceivable question through links to numerous sources of information. You can also visit the famous residence (turned museum) at www.sherlock-holmes.co.uk.
