PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This close-reading activity on the novel's pivotal moment, the creation of the monster, begins with having students compare three short embedded scenes depicting the monster's creation. We look at Frankenstein (1931), Young Frankenstein (1974), and Frankenstein (1994). The opening question asks students to identify the tone of each piece and compare them against the first three paragraphs of Volume 1, Chapter 4. Also embedded in the PowerPoint is a really cool reading of the text that intersperses quotations from Genesis, which creates great discussion on how the monster's creation is a nightmare version of God's creation of Adam. The lesson revolves around a close-reading of the chapter 4 excerpt along with Mary Shelley's description of the dream she had that inspired the novel. Also included in the PowerPoint is a painting by Joseph Wright to culminate the lesson and supplemental discussion questions for each of the text's paragraphs.
