Questions about Mary Shelley's background and literary elements related to Frankenstein: science fiction, gothic novels, Romanticism. I usually allow students to use whatever search engines they are comfortable with but encourage them to use a variety of sites and find the answers in two places before writing them down. This is meant to be a quick one-period search for information, and we usually go over the results together in the classroom the next day. However, this could be given for homework. Since informational text is being read to prepare to read a literary text, the standard associated with this lesson is about reading informational text.
