Today is the first group presentation. Make sure that you’ve read chapters 3-12 of Frankenstein, and the group’s blog post. We will start the day with a very brief quiz over the reading to make sure everyone is on the same page. We will then get the group presentation and discuss the book as a class.
Here is a link for the review for the midterm exam. The test will have 10 short answer questions. These can be answered in a sentence or two. There will also be one essay question. In the review you will find the three possible prompts for the essay. I will choose one on the day of the exam and you will answer that one. The short answer section and essay section are equally weighted in terms of the grade.
- Browse through the test review and begin filling out the questions.
- Read Sten Lindroth’s “Linnaeus and the Systematisation of Botany.” In the comments below, explain Linnaeus’s views on the connection between botany (and natural history more broadly) and religion.
