Introduction to Frankenstein

Twelfth graders consider the themes in Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein. They discuss the themes of beauty, revenge, pursuit of knowledge, ambition, science, conflict with parent and child, friendship, and nature. They search newspapers to find examples of these themes and compare them to Shelley's life and the novel.

I found this website through a colleague and just absolutely love it so far. There is an unbelievable wealth of information here at my fingertips. While planning lessons for the week, in just a few minutes I discovered the most creative and inspiring lessons that would have taken me months to plan by myself. Not only are they inspirational, but they also aid what I am already doing in my classroom while at the same time, provide opportunities for differentiated instruction. It's a breath of fresh air to get other ideas from other teachers to help me stay away from boring lesson ruts Lesson Planet helps me to perform my job to the best of my abilities. Thank you to all who contribute to this site. It is truly wonderful.
