Frankenstein Reading Homework Read Frankenstein over the coming weeks and highlight passages for each of the following four topics in a different color- be sure there is a colorcoded key at the beginning of your book.

Part I- Read letters 1-4 - chps 1-8- March 12th/13th Part II- chps. 9-17- March 20th/21st Part III- - chps 18-24- April 1st/April 2nd Topics: - The power of the natural world vs scientific world - Results of isolation/rejection from society - The pursuit of knowledge (to what extent?) - Inner vs. outer beauty How to Annotate a Book/Article Take margin notes (if you can), or notes on a separate sheet of paper. Think of margin notes as a conversation between you and the work. That’s right. Pretend the book/article stood on its own two feet and read itself to you. Close your eyes and picture your book in front of you. Give it human characteristics. Is he wearing a funny hat? Tight pants? Dark-rimmed glasses? Now, mold your book’s/article’s features as you listen to the narrator of the work. What is his tone like? Can you trust him? Do you agree with him? If not, I should be able to tell by your margin notes. If you were in conversation with the article, how would you respond to show that you’re an active listener? Respond to things that are said with questions, insights, conclusions, laughter, jokes, applications, connections, etc. Reading anything should encourage you to question everything. Make sure you understand what is being said. If you don’t understand a paragraph, reread it until you do. Having a conversation with an article (or, heck, even a person, for that matter) should encourage you to question, so write open-ended questions and try to answer them with support from the book. If you can figure out your question with research, research it!
