Sherlock: Dog Detective/Police Dogs
From the Series Double Dog Combos
We’ve paired our Best-Selling Dog Heroes narrative nonfiction title, Police Dogs, with our Hound Town Chronicles fiction book, Sherlock: A Police Dog Story.
The Common Core (9th anchor reading standard for each grade) recommends that students be exposed to topically related texts, with content that can be compared and contrasted, to develop analytic and general thinking skills. To help educators in this regard, a teaching guide for the pairings is available on each product page.
Each Teacher’s Guide offers:
• Ways to help students compare and contrast elements of fiction versus historical nonfiction
• Ideas for writing about the similarities and differences between the topically related stories in Sherlock: A Police Dog Story and the nonfiction anecdotes in Police Dogs
