Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Excerpt from "Frankenstein": Chapter 10" by Mary Shelley.

In this excerpt from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the creature demands that Frankenstein listen to his story of how he has suffered since being created.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Human vs. Nature, Loneliness & Isolation, and Power & Greed as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Who's in control: humanity or nature?", "How does power corrupt?", and "What does it mean to feel alone?"
