Write an essay that makes a prediction about what will happen in the portions of Frankenstein that you haven't yet read. Your prediction must be reasonable and supported by evidence from Mary Shelley's novel and from the historical context in which the story was written. Your assignment should include the following elements: A claim that makes a specific prediction about Frankenstein A response to a counterclaim that makes a counterprediction Evidence from the novel and from history that supports your claim An introduction paragraph, conclusion paragraph, and at least three body paragraphs Transitions that guide readers from one idea to the next Ask yourself these questions as you revise: Is my claim specific enough that it requires supporting evidence? Does it make a prediction about the course of Mary Shelley's novel that isn't obvious? Do I address at least one counterclaim that conflicts with my claim? Do I successfully argue against the counterclaim?
