The books in this series provide lower ability pupils and pupils with special educational needs access to the true texts of classic novels, combining abridged text from the original stories with storyboard layouts and illustrations. Each page is annotated for easy access and "think" boxes encourage pupils to discuss and address key points as they read. This photocopiable teacher's resource for "Frankenstein" offers guidance on how to use the student's book in the classroom or on a one-to-one basis. It is packed with stimulating activities on the text and further information on the social, cultural and historical context to the original story.
