Shared teaching and learning

Before reading

  • Talk about real-life mysteries and riddles – eg, yetis, the Loch Ness Monster, the Marie Celeste. Modern research methods are making it easier to solve some of these mysteries, but not all.
  • What do the class know about Vincent Van Gogh? Can they name some of his paintings? When and where did he live?
