Alex's AP Literature Frankenstein Bibliotherapy Essay

Song:  Frankenstein

Group:  The Edgar Winter Group

This is Alex's first essay for his AP Literature and Composition course.

The premise relies upon a modification to the original story of 'Frankenstein'.

Instead of the books read by Frankenstein's monster in the original story...
and of which had ultimately modified his behavior negatively...
the given premise asks for the student to pick several books that he would
have had Frankenstein's monster to instead have read in the story...
and to then describe how his behavior would have been modified in a positive manner
...and why.

Alex took about two hours to complete this assignment.

This particular assignment demanded not only critical reasoning...
but creativity.

This is an example of true education.

It is not an exercise of regurgitation...
but one of the simplification and condensation to concepts...
and then to the application of said concepts to realize a desired effect.

This is real life problem solving and critical reasoning...
brought to life through prose.
