Excellent resource for the classroom

By Word Nerd

Comments about PBS How Sherlock Changed the World DVD:

I plan to use this with the unit I teach surrounding the drama "12 Angry Men" and several Sherlock Holmes short stories. The critical thinking required by modern day forensic scientists links with the type of thinking we require of our students to some degree so in addition to being of interest to students in my English 10 classes, the video makes a modern day connection to the values of classic literature.

Saw this on PBS and had to order it to show my literature students before we read HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. Students loved the connection,and want to watch it again.

Sherlock has been my inspiration for 50

Comments about PBS How Sherlock Changed the World DVD:

The Sherlock Holmes series on PBS as well as other venues has been my inspiration for over 50 years. The DVD on How Sherlock Changed the world 'put it all together' for me especially as it relates to modern forensics. Blessings on an excellent adventure.
