FRANKENSTEIN UNIT – Complete with no prep for you.
This unit is created using the 1831 edition of the novel.
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 am a strong believer that when students work with a specific purpose in mind, they become better learners. That’s why my units contain only quality and worthwhile activities. You will find no busy work here. Every lesson focuses on teaching students analytical and essay writing skills.
All of the thinking and planning are done for you. The lesson plans are detailed and comprehensive. The student guide is visually appealing, and so the teacher put effort where they need to be. The answer key is complete and detailed. All you need to do is to purchase this unit and photocopy it.

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein
Very often, students have difficulty with the analysis process involved in literature. Where they not only have to analyze but now have to apply their newfound skills to a well-developed paragraph, some students become overwhelmed with the process.
This particular activity will focus on both the analysis and writing a paragraph using the PEEL method.
Paragraph writing and analysis are two essential components in essay writing. To facilitate this process, I have created a lesson where students can become more comfortable with the revision process by modelling the proper steps from beginning to end. The lesson includes modelling the writing process from understanding the topic to the final draft. See preview for details
This lesson can only be used after students have read chapter 19 of the novel Frankenstein.
FRANKENSTEIN NOTE-TAKING FOR CRITICAL THINKING
This thought-provoking resource encourages students to think critically about the novel to extend their knowledge of themes and how they are developed. The package is a great alternative to the traditional comprehension questions usually assigned by teachers and invites students to think deeply about the materials read. The instructional strategy used within these pages is similar to that of a “flipped classroom” created to further engage students in their learning.
Instead of traditional comprehension questions given after chapters, students are given guided note-taking sheets (in Google Docs) where they are prompted on what kind of information to focus on within each chapter. For example, some chapters rely heavily on symbol development while others focus more on character development. Students will learn how to take effective notes and how to ask effective questions thus developing the novel’s themes. The second part of the sheet requires students to extend their learning by participating in small group discussions where they learn how to ask Socratic questions, discuss important novel elements in guided discussions, and participate in creative activities to further investigate the characters’ motivations.
Each sheet prompts students on which information to focus their notes on and includes a group activity where students are encouraged to develop their own questions based on the chapters’ thematic focus to deepen their understanding of the intricacies of the novel and the literary elements used to develop themes. This teaching strategy creates independent and responsible learners. When students have completed their group work, a guided discussion with the entire class highlights different perspectives on how to analyze Shelley’s classic tale.
All materials are available in Google Docs and are modifiable.
Students learn how to:
Take good notes
Work in a group setting
Ask good questions
Be responsible in their learning
Analyze the novel
Become engaged in their learning
To think critically
- Success criteria, overall expectations, and an evaluation grid are included for teachers who want to evaluate the notes and the group discussions.
- Peer and Self-Evaluation grids are included for students
- Pacing guide for the teacher to help with planning
This resource also pairs well with my Frankenstein Unit and Frankenstein Workbook.
A total of 30 pages.
