This one page lesson plan centers around flat and round characters in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. It looks at the characters through the lens of personal responsibility. The lesson includes an aim, a very interesting do-now, instructional objective, definitions of flat characters and round characters, and an in-class activity in which the students analyze the characters in Frankenstein.
There is a small graphic organizer included in the body of this lesson plan because I find it helps the students remember to always include evidence to support what they are trying to prove.
When the students are done with this lesson they should have a pretty solid grasp on the differences between flat and round characters. I find ,myself referring back to this lesson quite often, as it is a memorable one.
Also, I included a few notes about alchemy as I found that term / concept was way over the heads of the students. since it is a large part of Victor Frankenstein's character, I found this information to be very helpful to the students. I hope you can make use of it and find this lesson enjoyable.
