Product Description
A series of resources to help with study of the novel.

Includes:

- Mary Shelly's background and its implications on the text (Students complete some initial research into Shelley's parents' literary careers before applying this knowledge to 'Frankenstein' in the form of a PMI chart. Teachers should organise some library time for the research part of the worksheet.)

- The Human Psyche ( A Blooms creating level task where students initially prepare written responses to the theory of the doppelganger in the novel before constructing a series of scenarios based around the concept, 'what would happen if?' This worksheet explores the psychological effects of Victor Frankenstein through ideas much ahead of Shelley's time.)

- Imagery diamonds (A Blooms creating (organising) task in which students must create their own imagery diamond around the concept of the fallen angel.)

- Key Ideas: The Unconscious (A series of discussion points to springboard ideas around how the unconscious is represented in the novel. Can be used as a point of reference for essay writing.)

- Structure ( What are the connections between one story to the next within 'Frankenstein'?)

- Quote journey (A selection of key quotes which students must assign various themes to and analyse each quote's significance.)

- Nature vs Nurture ( A highlighting task sheet which looks at the role nurturing plays in the novel, what contradicts it, its effects and the contrast between man and nature.)

- An exploration into what romanticism was and how it applied to the text; a look at the preface Shelly wrote in 1831; a quotes task on intellect in the novel as well as a think, pair share reflection and two other myths (Prometheus and Faust) to take into consideration.
