FRANKENSTEIN UNIT – Complete with no prep for you.
This unit has been created with the teacher in mind. The material is geared toward senior students with a focus on the construction of arguments. It also teaches the importance of historical context as well as literary allusions in the development of themes.
I’ve done all of the thinking for you. The lesson plans are detailed and comprehensive. The student guide is visually appealing and facilitates the teacher’s job. Also, the answer key is complete and detailed. All the teacher needs to do is to purchase this unit and photocopy it.
