Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective of them all. He sits in his room, and smokes his pipe. He listens, and watches, and thinks. He. Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan Doyle – Obra Completa series which now contains no fewer than fifty-six stories, republished in The Adventures.
Without a doubt a valid approach in language education, however, it could also contain, as a language learning exer- cise, additional information on the story being read, such as a vertical timeline with dates and facts in ordering the information presentable, and details on other important constituents of the story characters, settings, plots, action, and other content matters.
They are ideal stories because, for one, the main and minor characters, in the whole of the canon are being introduced and therefore easy to compare or contrast them in these stories.
Furthermore, the graded reader for the Speckled Band has a story element missing, which actually forms an important element in the original. Holmes' humorous personality can be more clearly understood by students through perusing this pre-selected part in the Strand-edition. PowerPoint presentations are done in small groups of four members on topics concerned with the second graded reader Oong story for the year titled The Sign of Four level headwords.
This book is read outside class dur- ing the summer holidays. Without the teacher present, students need to work on their own, collecting information in a methodical and structural way in their note- books, a secondary benefit being the manual skill of writing. The reading and col- lection of information in notebooks, are the first step towards the production of PowerPoint presentations, and form the initial steps towards explaining to other class members assigned topics from the story during the second term.
This is the output of knowledge, and the receiving class members the audience will have the chance to collect possibly misunderstood or interesting information, which becomes the input or listening experience. By self-study and note taking Oistening part of the PowerPoint presentations by other class members, the notebook contains data from different sources and valuable testimony of student research and investigation en- deavours. In class, a vocabulary journal is also kept in the notebook with pre-selected entries of text sections from the original Strand edi- tion to check and Naxos audio-books Timson, are used for students to become familiar with the pronunciation of those vocabulary entries to be used in their third term presentations.
The PowerPoint presentations are in this term completely self-produced by the student-groups themselves looking at the story from their viewpoints and finding interesting details by themselves in the stories, in this case the Sherlock Holmes stories, and widen the field of vision of students. Students can investigate for instance, the hound as a topic. The s tudents ask themselves: What is a hound?
How is this different from a dog? Are there other canine categories? Read- ing functions then as a trigger to look at matters and subjects outside the story to investigate and collect information for presentations. Although completely self-produced presentations, it is essential for the teacher to see if the product is ac- cording to the standards established and practiced in the previous terms.
This cov- ers the collection of information 1st term and to re-structure it for PowerPoint presentations 2nd term. In figure 1, there is a gradual progress towards a students' groups own initiative of action. The first two terms the instructor decided the books, the notebook formatting style, and the topics of the 2d term PP presentations. In the third term there is more room for self-produced groups' efforts and is therefore titled as advanced. R title and main purposes Sherlock Holmes: Language learning by Literature 4.
By us- ing an integrated computer system, the instruction and learning process can be fa- cilitated through a more efficient use of time for large classes 40 students or more with limited duration 75 minutes.
With this technology, assignments and explana- tions can be readily seen and understood by a larger amount of the students in pace with their own retention speed after they receive PDF files on their individual PC's.
For one thing, students are able to do web searches for difficult passages in all three editions. Of course, as an extra benefit of these searches of English-based websites, vocabulary knowledge increases. From these searches, students develop skills in association and look for related search material more closely connected to their personal interests.
Looking, for instance, for certain information in the story, or to find recurrent vocabulary in con- text becomes very feasible within class time.
With the OCR function, students can also locate through a keyword input certain information when preparing their presentations. The individual research projects can then be shared interactively with the other class members.
In an interesting article on haptics-the science of touch and sensa- tion-by MangenNelay , the importance of handwriting is addressed as fol- lows: The increasing disembodiment of writing currently taking place should not be reduced to a matter of interest primarily for philosophers, nos- talgics and neo-Luddites, as it points to the importance of acknowl- edging the vital role of haptics, and the profound and fundamental links between haptics and cognition, in writing.

Therefore, handwr iting forms a slow a nd delibera te activity towards a long term memor y effect. Disadva ntages regarding classes centered on using graded readers are that the ef- fect will not be directly applicable to practical communication skills measurable in qua ntity a nd quality. It is long-ter m educationa l investment wit h the results later in time. For students who have difficulty concentra ti ng on reading, it will be a ver y demotivati ng way to learn a la nguage this way.
Another point to observe is that the interests of students a re not acknowledged fully when t he class- material is full y decided by the teacher. Students need to have a strong self-motivation to continue and understand that the benefi ts of la nguage fluency a nd acquisition will be ahead. For the teacher it is a difficult task to assess the actual progress being ma de by students. These a re some of t he possible demerits in a pplying gra ded readers in th e teaching English through literature.
In fi gure 2 the most important merits a nd demerits are listed for the purpose of comparison. Structural org:mi With the disadvantages and advantages introduced above, it is necessary to clarify the purposes and functions of the reading classes as a means to enhance language acquisition and other beneficial skills like collecting information and presenting research results in the study process. Reading is then one part in the internal production process of communication.
Like Fleming, Conan Doyle was persuaded by public outcry, and the heated protests of his own mother, to resurrect Holmes in The Adventure of the Empty House. But this is to ignore the extent to which the literary duo of Holmes and Watson influenced the buddy-cop films which came half a century later. That Sherlock Holmes continues to be a relevant figure in culture is perhaps surprising when you stop to consider the extent to which he is an absolute emblem of the Victorian Era.
Appearing first in , Holmes emerges at the tail end of the Industrial Revolution in England. The subsequent exponential growth in the urban population of London brought with it a rise in crime, in particular because with the growth of industry there was an increased opportunity for theft and embezzlement, an increase in potential gains for criminal activity and likewise potential losses for companies.
The Enlightenment was an intellectual revolution in the 17th and 18th centuries whose purpose was to reform society with reason, and to challenge the reigning paradigm of thought which relied heavily on tradition and faith. Many Enlightenment thinkers were scientists or had scientific backgrounds and they saw science as a way to overthrow religious and traditional authority.
Conan Doyle did not invent detective literature, rather he revolutionized it by relying on Enlightenment principles. Bell would bring into the classroom a patient with a strange, complex and unnamed disease.
The philosopher forms his principles on an infinity of particular observations. He does not confuse truth with plausibility; he takes for truth what is true, for forgery what is false, for doubtful what is doubtful, and probable what is probable. The philosophical spirit is thus a spirit of observation and accuracy. If the Victorian Era is notorious for anything it is their strict adherence to an impossibly puritan moral code.
But while religiosity was still rampant, traditional beliefs had been rattled, and as the influence on day-to-day life of the church waned, there arose more comfort and a sense of freedom to explore the occult something expressly forbidden by the church.
The confrontation between reason and faith was thus still a very pressing concern at the time. Sir Charles had been very interested in the myth of the family curse which tells of a giant, black, hell-hound which hunts down and kills members of the Baskerville family.
The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply. It was a prostrate man face downward upon the ground, the head doubled under him at a horrible angle, the shoulders rounded and the body hunched together as if in the act of throwing a somersault.
So grotesque was the attitude that I could not for the instant realize that the moan had been the passing of his soul. As an expression of rebellion against the moral and religious values of the time, Crowley created the religious philosophy Thelema. The film also makes allusions to Freemasonry, who are primarily secretive about their rituals, and use gestures, handshakes and passwords to gain access to meetings; however, their focus is charitable work, moral uprightness and fraternal bonds there are no female members.
But the Freemasons have long been suspected in conspiracy theories as many men of power and great political influence including more than a few American presidents have been members.
The most famous conspiracy theory involving Freemasonry is, perhaps, found in the theory Jack the Ripper was a Freemason.
The Hermetica are Egyptian-Greek wisdom texts from the 2nd and 3rd centuries which teach oneness with God. Hermetism sees wisdom as comprising three parts: alchemy, astrology, and theurgy magic, which can be black or divine. Neither does the film invent the system of symbols on which Blackwood builds his plans. Importantly, Levi described Baphomet as a sphinx as it is a fusion of many creatures into one being. The Victorian Era also saw a resurgent interest in all things Egyptian, also reflected in the Egyptian influence in Thelema.
And so the reliance on the sphinx in the film is wholly appropriate. The Sign of the Four. The Hound of the Baskervilles. The Valley of Fear. A Scandal in Bohemia. The Red-Headed League.
