This visual note-taking worksheet bundle is designed to be used in conjunction with the popular Crash Course Literature Season 2 ‘Frankenstein’ videos (episodes 5 and 6) on YouTube. The videos cover biographical information about the author, the historical and scientific context in which the novel was written, the effects of Romanticism and Enlightenment on the novel, creation myths connected to the novel, and various interpretations of the novel (autobiographical, feminist, whether pursuing knowledge is inherently dangerous etc).
The printable worksheets encourage active listening and spur students to think deeply about how to read, understand and interpret different literature texts. The episodes run for approximately 13 minutes each, so mini-lessons could run for between 20-40 minutes depending on the class.
Teacher notes are included. The notes contain hyperlinks to the videos. Please note that some worksheets have more than one version to account for spelling differences between the USA and UK/Australia. Ensure you print the applicable worksheet. Teacher notes are written with American spelling.
How to use:
1. Introduce the concept of visual note-taking (if your class is unfamiliar). Google (or visit the TPT store of) Math Giraffe for more information about the process and benefits of visual note-taking.
2. Explain that you will be watching a short video about the text and that students are to use the worksheet to take notes. Explain that they are encouraged to write, highlight, draw, shade, and scribble while listening/watching.
3. Give students time to pre-read the worksheet in preparation for the video.
4. After the video has played, use it as a starting point for discussion about the text and discuss what students have written as part of their notes.
