Speaking Activity
The Victorian era: Queen Victoria's reign (1837-1901).

One of the most extraordinary periods of transformation in British history.
Britain as the world´s first industrial society
The largest empire in history.
Populations movements from rural areas to the industrial towns
New modes of transportation improving connections between different places

Holmes needs a city like London to be a detective:

A place of bustling economic prosperity, a huge city bringing
together new populations, new commercial goods and new
forms of transportation. A sign of growing wealth and insecurity

Adapting Sherlock
- Sherlock Holmes' stories have been constantly adapted to several contexts, such as film, theater, radio or TV.

- To some experts, the figure may well reach over 25,000 Holmes-related productions.

- The most relevant one is BBC's Sherlock, a contemporary remake of Arthur Conan Doyle's stories.

Writing Activity
In September 1887 my wife was visiting some of her family, so I was staying with my old friend Sherlock Holmes in Baker Street. It was a windy, stormy evening, and the rain was falling heavily outside. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. I looked at my friend in surprise. 'Who can this be?' I asked. 'If he comes on business in this weather, it's important,' said Sherlock Holmes. 'Come in!' he called. A young man came in. He looked wet, tired and worried. 'I've come to ask for help,' he said. 'I've heard of you, Mr Holmes. People say you know everything. I don't know what to do.' 'Well, sit down,' said Holmes, 'and tell me about yourself.' The young man sat down, and put his wet feet near the fire....
Now that you are familiar with the setting, move around London and create the continuation of this this story in groups.
Watson also describes Holmes as an eccentric, with no regard for contemporary standards of tidiness or good order, erratic eating habits and an ego that at times borders on arrogant.
Guess what...?

Try to solve a real case by using holmesian deduction in teams.
Who was Robin Clark?
What was doing there?
What happened?
Has the victim obvious links to crime?

Once you know the current events:
Why happened?
Who is 'guilty'?

- You are one of Holmes' most brilliant aides. Following his deductive method try to imagine the password of this given device. You only have three attempts to guess it right.

-You should use all your intuition and come up with a thoughtful and significant password. Random passwords are hard to remember.
Logic and Reasoning
Logic and Reasoning
- You will now check if your solving skills deserve Sherlock Holmes' attention. Watch his reasoning and compare it with your different guesses.

- As you may have noticed, this given scenario requires a lateral-thinking ability that goes beyond average responses. Sherlock embodies this and many other skills.
