Can man create life in a laboratory? The science fiction genre is the exploration of what might happen, if technology advances a certain way, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is considered by many to be the first science fiction novel . . . which she began when she was 19, and published when she was 21.

Watch the great analysis of the novel done by www.60secondrecap.com and compare it with the following “crash analysis”, which way of approaching a classic do you like better? Both sites are meant to make students appreciate some literary masterpieces.

Shortly I will prepare a video tutorial on some key aspects of “Frankenstein”. It would be great if you started recording your tutorials too. They might come in handy for revision before a test. You can use this application, very easy to use. Though the length of a video should not be more than five minutes, the following is an example of a tutorial given by a student himself.

This is a pretty long documentary by BBC, entitled “The Real Story of Frankenstein’s Monster”. I am posting it just for those who want to investigate more and happen to feel like watching it. I liked it because I am fascinated by the great documentaries BBC creates for the benefit of all people. A great way to share and spread great literature.

This Padlet is meant for your own digital products prompted by Mary Shelley’s Monster, or better “The Creature” as I prefer referring him by.
