4º British: Victorian era in Twitter



You are about to start the third edition of your favourite historical activity... twitter in class! 

London, 1 May 1851. Queen Victoria is about to inaugurate the “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations” at the Crystal Palace...


Here you have a full list of possible Victorian' characters you can impersonate during the activity (the Queen? Her Prime Minister? A suffragist? A famous writter? An industrial worker?... there are many possibilities!); take a couple of days for reading it carefully, doing some online investigation and choosing one. On Friday, 15:30 hours, you can send me an email with your choosen character. 

Once you have received my confirmation, you must create a twitter account (please do NOT use your personal one) as you were him/her. With this “historical account” you become follower of @auladeadriana

During the next two weeks you have to create a minimum of 20 tweets (12 of them base on real primary sources) in the name of your chosen character. Try not to be independent, but “talk” with the others (a worker complaining to his boss because of the terrible laboral conditions? Queen Victoria visiting the Universal Exhibition? Politicians exchanging messages and speeches?...)

The previous years, this experiment was a total success and your partners really did good performances, so you will have to work hard for leading them...

The activity will finish on Friday 5 of February. This work is individual and mandatory and will be part of the score at the end of the term. If you fail to finish it, do it out of date, or just copy from a webpage, the mark will be a 0 for this work.


Be creative and enjoy it! J
