“Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley, was written when the author was only 19-years-old and on vacation with her much older lover, Percy Shelley, on Lake Geneva at the home of Lord Byron – and that is only part of the back story.
In seven short minutes of video – students will be engaged in the background and literary nuances of the literary classic “Frankenstein”. Theme, character and literary analysis are spelled out for kids by an engaging teacher who walks through the story – literally!
Clipped Classics are short video clips designed to engage even the most reluctant readers. Fun, relatable and memorable – these 5 to 10 minute clips summarize classic literature – inclusive of author background and literary nuances – in a way that students will not only remember important details, but also be engaged in reading the classics.
Clipped Classics are perfect for the Common Core classroom and help teachers and help students access information like never before. As teachers, we wanted to create a way to help all students want to read literature and have fun discovering authors, characters, story and plot – so we took a School House Rockish approach! Our students love them. We hope yours will too!
