Simulating Sherlock

One of my favorite detective shows is the new Sherlock Holmes series, Sherlock, by the BBC—not just because of the actors but because of the way Sherlock visualizes crime scenarios. I create problems, and we use Sherlock Holmes’ “mind palace” image of facts, figures, and clues to create our own solutions. The students have great fun playing John Watson to my brilliant Sherlock Holmes, throwing out their theories or pointing out new clues.
