If you’d like an awesome kit for Frankenstein, then you’ve come to the right place!
Creating “foundational” content can be very time-consuming, and this package alleviates that problem.
Additionally, if you want fresh insights to the text that will really connect with students, then you’ll love this kit. (On a side note: If you don’t discuss the philosophical concepts of consequentialism vs. non-consequentialism in regard to Victor’s ethical dilemma…and you don’t explore how this debate can apply to teenage decision-making, then you need to order this kit NOW.) ;)
Here’s what’s included in this package:
-Frankenstein Powerpoints (twelve of them) (.ppt). These are perfect for adding depth and creating discussion after reading and annotating. They are chunked into sections of reading that correspond to the reading quizzes. You should use these with the included Marzano note-taking template.
-Marzano Note-Taking Template (PDF). This is a blank Cornell-type organizer to use with the powerpoints. This forces the students to summarize the material and make it their own. (Topics go on the left-hand side. Notes go on the right.)
-Frankenstein Reading Quizzes (.doc). Twelve “Reading Check” quizzes. (Each quiz contains approximately five questions.)
-Frankenstein Final Test Part I (.doc). This served as a take-home test wherein students were given ten essay prompts and had to write responses to two of them. You can modify this any way you see fit to align with your students' writing needs.
-Scoring Sheet for Final Test Part I (.doc). This was a very simple (yet effective) scoring sheet / rubric for Part I of the test. There are five categories and five points per category. (Yes, this is absolutely the most subjective grading tool in my store, but it absolutely works, still holds high standards, and absolutely saves time.)
-Frankenstein Final Test Part II (.doc). This was a 50-question multiple-choice exam that worked in conjunction with the written part of the test. (No answer key. I didn’t want to upload the scantron.)
