What is an "I - Search" research paper? Please forward details. I am in the process of
teaching Frankenstein to sophomores in a large (3400 students) comprehensive, urban high
school. I am focusing attention on the structure of the novel, the language and the
following questions: What are the obligations of a creator to his creation? What are the
consequences when the creator neglects his obligations? We have discussed recent examples
of young people from dysfunctional families who have preyed on others and those who have
killed their newborns. We also discuss portions of Genesis. They are almost halfway
through the book and report difficulty reading alone, but when I hold discussions in
class, they understand. Also, pairs have begun to discuss individual chapters with the
entire class following the teacher's model. A teacher prepared study guide directs their
attention to various aspects of the novel.
