See the attachment below for the annotation and outline instructions for the project.

Annotations and outlines are due Wednesday at the end of class for period 2, and Thursday at the beginning of class for period 1. 

Presentations will take place next week. We will present in random order, if you are not ready to present on the day you are chosen then you will receive a penalty of two letter grades. Presentations should take approximately 5 minutes. Your classmates and I may ask follow up questions for your presentation.

Presentations must have some sort of visual element; that may be: a powerpoint, a prezi, a significant quote shown on the board, an image, a short video clip, etc.

The presentation should consist of:
- The title and author of the essay
- A brief overall summary of the article
- An explanation of 3-5 major points/ideas/arguments/etc
- Supporting details, evidence, elaboration for each of the 3-5 major points 
- Your evaluation of the article, and why: was it insightful? helpful? interesting? complicated? irrelevant? incorrect?

Read and annotate your chosen Frankenstein article and bring it on Monday.

Remember, the articles are tricky and college level, just do your best. You may not understand everything and that is ok.

If you find your essay impossible to understand, email me before Sunday at 7 pm and I will provide you with a new article.
