Whodunit? Students in Lynn Trevett’s seventh grade English Language Arts classes recently investigated a mock crime scene to kick off their mystery unit. 

Students are reading independent mystery novels of their own choosing this month.

“In class we are reading some exciting, edge of your seat literature by Edgar Allen Poe, along with some other popular plays from the bygone days of radio like ‘Sorry, Wrong Number,'” Trevett said.
