Sorry, this product is no longer available. Richard Webster and his crack staff of software developers have locked themselves in a think tank until their ground-breaking computer program “Rosebud” is complete. When the doors finally open, Webster’s dead body is discovered having been apparently strangled by a mouse cord, and his prized program has been erased.
Science and literacy are merged as students are required to be critical and active readers as they conduct their investigation. Participants evaluate crime scene photos, analyze lab reports, phone messages, and interviews to extract key information using the methods of highlighting, tagging with sticky notes, and note taking. As students extract key information, they will formulate hypotheses (being alert to red herrings) as to the identity of the murderer. Gathering additional information will require students to reformulate their initial hypothesis until they arrive at a final conclusion and determine which of the six suspects is responsible for the death. Eventually students are able to recreate the night in question and determine which suspect should be charged with murder. Installment includes a poster with key information and a CD with PDF master files for duplication. Poster measures 24 x 24.
