Just because you can, should you? Reflections on the ethics and limits of medical research are prompted by a reading of excerpts of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, viewing of clips from the 1931 film, and examining sections of the online exhibition, Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secretes of Nature. The resource contains two detailed plans: “Electricity, Frankenstein, and the Spark of Life,” for middle school, and “’It’s Alive!’:  Frankenstein and the Limits of Medical Research,” for high school classrooms. A great cross-curricular plan.
