New Frankenstein Text for 2017 GCSE - Easy to Read, Quotable, Annotated with Exam-Ready Essays

Michael Gove might have cruelly snatched Of Mice and Men from us, but teaching older, longer texts doesn't have to be horrible. Here's a super student-friendly version of Frankenstein, sensitively shortened to just over the length of Of Mice and Men, with all the events and important quotations left in the original.

This book is accessible even to lower ability sets and could be used with younger year groups to get them ready for the challenges of older texts. It's fully illustrated, with a nod to Dr Seuss, and the iPad format lets students create their own flashcards to revise quotations so they're ready for the closed book exam. Because it's shorter, it frees up class time so you can really get to grips with the story without having to skip sections, or spend forever explaining difficult phrases.
