Level 1 English Crime - Semester A

Have you ever wondered what makes a criminal tick? Have you ever imagined yourself with a magnifying glass and a notepad solving the strangest of crimes? Then this class is for you. 

Become an amateur detective for a semester and investigate the motives of criminal masterminds. We will hunt down clues in our own escape rooms, research infamous cases and analyse evidence to figure out the who, what, when and where of the crime. So dust off your Cluedo set, get out those binoculars and let's solve some mysteries!
