Bringing Literature Alive -Examining the Scene of the Crime

8th graders recently read "The Landlady" by Roald Dahl. Because Mr. Dahl leaves readers to draw their own conclusion to the ending of this "grisly" tale, the English teachers gave the students the opportunity to finish the ending. One of the teachers set the scene for her students -and gave them an additional option of examining the crime scene and writing up what they think happened from the evidence. The students really enjoyed the exercise.
