2. Holmes in the classroom is an effective way to introduce learners toobservation and logic .I believe that Holmes is a relevant character in school because he nevertheorizes without facts . Instead, he bases his findings on what he alreadyknows .The connection betweenobservation and deductionhas applications across the curriculum. Skills that can be introduced by using Holmes, arescanninginformation,select ing what is relevant anddiscard ing what is less so, before combining findings withprior knowledge .I believe that onlythencan learners form a valid opinion. 3.
