Frankenstein Quote Quizlet test review
As discussed in class, leave a response to the novel below. Use your first name and last initial so that you may be identified. (If there are more than one of you with the same first name, last initial, be creative. How will I know who you are?) Your response should be at least 250 words. When possible, use quotes to support your points. Your argument and/or idea will be stronger if you support it.
You should also respond to at least one other person’s comments. More class participation credit will be given to those who comment more. I will be reading all of your comments, so check back for my responses. Although I cannot respond to all of you individually, I will make comments where I see fit. -Ms. Mc
