Dracula Lesson Plan
Excerpt From this Document
By using this lesson plan for Bram Stoker's Dracula, teachers will help their students gain a better understanding of the 19th-century Gothic novel. Examples of guided discussion and study questions from this lesson plan include the following:
- What does Jonathan find strange about his carriage ride to Castle Dracula? Jonathan feels they are traveling over and over the same ground. He then hears the howling of dogs, later followed by the howling of wolves. The wind increases and it becomes colder. Jonathan also seese a faint flickering blue flame.
- What does Jonathan Harker find waiting for him when he arrives at the Golden Krone Hotel? There is a note from Count Dracula waiting for him that says his coachman will meet Jonathan at the Borgo Pass to bring him to Castle Dracula.
- Why does the hotel landlady beg Jonathan not to continue his journey? She tells him it is the Eve of St. George’s Day, and when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway.
- What does Van Helsing learn of Count Dracula’s mortal life? Dracula had been a soldier, statesman, and a brilliant alchemist. He had a mighty brain, a learning beyond compare, and a heart that knew no fear or remorse. He also apparently attended Scholomance, a mythical school of dark magic.
- How does the group divide its members in order to best capture Count Dracula? Arthur and Jonathan will take a steamboat and attempt to locate the boat that Dracula is on. Dr. Seward and Quincey Morris will travel along the riverbank on horseback to make sure the Count doesn’t get on land. Mina and Van Helsing will go directly to Castle Dracula to destroy his lair.
