    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.
