This unit, Murder in the Classroom, will use the novel Murder on the Orient Express in conjunction with other mystery short stories to help students develop argumentative essays. My students love a good mystery and will be engaged in reading to find out who is the culprit. I will use the clues we gather from this novel to develop a mock trial. Using it in this way will also develop their debate skills. I think it is very important for students to be able to form an opinion, support it with evidence, and argue their point in a respectful manner. After studying this novel, short stories from Edgar Allen Poe, and real police reports, we will create argumentative essays to prove our verdicts.
