Throughout the first term we’ve analyzed all the factors that led to the development of the first industrial revolution and it’s impact.


Part A.

Make 3/4 questions to your interviewee. Provide the answers to your questions. Make sure your questions are a reflection of the times, the political, social and economic context as well as a clear example of the character that is being interviewed.

Part B.

Get together with those in your same area: Inventions – The Art – Society.

Together with those in your same area, prepare an opinion panel on ONE of the following:

  1. The role of women.
  2. Changes in health.
  3. Working conditions.
  4. Religion.
  5. The Arts.

Part C.

Make a jingle to use as a separation between the two parts of the radio programme. Make sure your jingle is on a topic related to the times of the Industrial Revolution.



I first worked with Victoria Quiroga and did an interview to the historical chracter we had previously chosen: Elizabeth Fry. In the interview we asked her several questions related to all the progress she had made in order to improve the conditions of British prisons and reform prisoners.

  1. What were your concerns about the treatment prisoners received? Tell us about your book…

When I visited Newgate prison in London, I was horrified by the conditions they lived in. The women section was overcrowded with women and children, some of whom hadn’t received a trial. They did the cooking and washing in small cells in which they slept on straw.

Moreover, I started thinking there was a need for a change in the way prisoners were being transported. Women of Newgate Prison were taken through the streets of London in open carts, often in chains, huddled together with their few possessions. They were pelted with rotten food and filth by the people of the city.

I wrote a book known as ”Prisons in Scotland and the North of England” in order to transmit my testimony and my experience when visiting prisons not only in England but all over Europe and invited the nobility to experience what my eyes have seen.

2. Some people have criticized the fact that you were not following the “the role of women” you were supposed to. What would you say to those people out there?

First of all, I don’t believe in the stereotype women are forced to follow. Just think about it. Why would I stay home waiting for my husband to return from work when I could be out there helping people who need it the most? Of course, I love my eleven children and my husband but I also love my work and the changes I am producing in society. So please, reconsider your stereotype of women because every one of you ladies should do what you love no matter what other people think.

3. Wait a minute, I’ve heard that you established an early shelter for homeless people in London. Is that true? I think it is awesome, could you tell us some details about this project?

After seeing the body of a young boy in the winter of 1820 I decided I needed to do something about this terrible situation by helping the homeless. That’s why I organized a visit to Brighton where I instituted the Brighton district visiting society. This society is arranged for volunteers to visit the homes of those poor people and provide them with help and comfort. The plan was so successful that it expanded all over Britain. I am so glad people are joining me on this project because together we are making progress.

Descriptive & Imaginative writing

Task: choose 2 pictures and write a description connecting them.

-Describe the places in detail

-Describe the situation (use your imagination) and the feelings of the people.

-Think about the mood

I worked with Trini Torrendell and we’ve chosen the following pictures to write a description about:

In the first picture, we can see a couple having dinner in a sumptuous restaurant. 

She seems to be a middle age woman, around her thirties. A skinny, tanned good looking lady. With a sophisticated modern look. In contrast, the prime man’s complexion is well built, he has dark brown hair, a long mustache and is wearing a new black-color plain suit.

Worried about the future trip they dreamed and planned to do since they were little kids aggressively she yelled at him: Ugh! Every time you make decisions that involve us both your never take me into account!                    Surrounded by a tense atmosphere, with a puzzled look on his face, he cautiously retired humiliated on account of her squeals. 

After being stood up in Carl’s restaurant both decided that they needed some time in order to consider whether or not they should continue with their relationship. 

For that reason, she went to visit her parents at San Francisco, Colorado. 

The mountains were covered in a thick blanket of white snow. Placed at the top of the mountain she was able to admire the beauty of God’s creation. Breath pale against the numbing air, she blinked thoughtfully as the frost patiently kissed her face, captivated by the soft. She adored the snow. 

Far away from the city and its responsibilities she decided to return back home and rekindle and light the passion of their relationship.

Elizabeth Fry-Histagrams

After working on the different stages of Economy that would lead to the emergence of capitalism we have stopped and done research on  important characters during the Industrial Revolution. I’ve worked with Victoria Quiroga on Elizabeth Fry. In order to recreate a vivid image of her and the role she played in society during the 19th century, we have created Histagrams. 

Wanna check ours and get to know Elizabeth fry?


For more info, here’s a short bio on Elizabeth fry: 

Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) was a pioneering campaigner for better conditions in prisons during the Victorian Period. She was a middle-class Quaker who sought to highlight the squalid and unsanitary conditions in British prisons and provide practical solutions to help improve conditions and reform prisoners. Gaining the support of prominence members of society, such as Queen Victoria and Florence Nightingale, she played an important role in later legislation which improved conditions in prisons.

“An Evening in Paradise”


Group work: Kenny, Quiroga, Giambruni, Bernusi, Torrendell and Donato

  • What kind of writer was he? Explain.

1)  Characteristics of Metaphysical poets 

  • He wrote Paradise Lost. What is it about?

2) Summary of the poem:

Paradise Lost is about Adam and Eve, how they came to be created and how they came to lose their place in the Garden of Eden, also called Paradise. It’s the same story you find in the first pages of Genesis, expanded by Milton into a very long, detailed, narrative poem. It also includes the story of the origin of Satan. Originally, he was called Lucifer, an angel in heaven who led his followers in a war against God, and was ultimately sent with them to hell. Thirst for revenge led him to cause man’s downfall by turning into a serpent and tempting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.

  • Now, read the poem and say what you understand from it using your own words.

3)  The poem starts describing an evening in which every minute is more quiet and darker. All animals are asleep except for the wakeful nightingale with is singing. The writer describes the evening as similar to paradise and the day as the time to work. In that way, paradise is achieved, if you work hard when you are still alive.

4) Analogy: is a literary device that helps to establish a relationship based on similarities between two concepts or ideas. By using an analogy we can convey a new idea by using the blueprint of an old one as a basis for understanding. With a mental linkage between the two, one can create understanding regarding the new concept in a simple and succinct manner. 

In the poem this literary is device is employed to build up a relationship between the two concepts which differ from each other: “Evening and Paradise”.

The analogy in this poem is that after having worked during most of your life, peaceful nights would come and leading you to paradise.

Evening: “Silence” ; “Twilight”

Paradise: “Majesty” ; “Brightest”


  •  Analogy: is a literary device that helps to establish a relationship based on similarities between two concepts or ideas. By using an analogy we can convey a new idea by using the blueprint of an old one as a basis for understanding. With a mental linkage between the two, one can create understanding regarding the new concept in a simple and succinct manner. 
  • Symbolism: Symbolism can take different forms. Generally, it is an object representing another, to give an entirely different meaning that is much deeper and more significant.
  • Personification: Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing – an idea or an animal – is given human attributes. The non-human objects are portrayed in such a way that we feel they have the ability to act like human beings.


It could account as a funeral scene.

Although, Milton uses peaceful images to link both concepts: Evening and Paradise.          In some way, he is leading us to the path of death and taking us away from life by describing in deep the majesty of heaven.

Analyzing quotes: Games at Twillight

I worked with Sofia Montoya and Tota Lupi and in the following virtual period we had to select 10 quotes taken from the story we had already read called Games at Twilight written by Anita Desai and analyze them.

  • The ignominy of being forgotten – how could he face it?

This Quote represents a very important moment in the story where we can find Ravi reflecting about life and how frustrating it is to be forgotten by your own friends.

  • “Silence by a terrible sense of his insignificante”

In this quote Ravi is going through a moment of accepting reality and how disgusting it is to be forgotten by your own friends. When someone remembers you is because he cares about you and you are significant for that person, this means Ravi wasn’t neither remembered or significant to his friends.

  • “His voice broke with rage and pity at the disgrace of it all and he felt himself flooded with tears and misery.”

This quote represents the moment at which Ravi realized he has been forgotten. He went out of the shed and saw his friends playing another game, while he was hiding. This quote shows the exactly feeling of loneliness and disappointment, the misery and pain of not having won and being forgotten.

  • “He had wanted victory and triumph – not a funeral.”

This quotes shows the importance of the game for Ravi. It was clear that for him it meant more than just a little kids game, and he really wanted to win. But after realizing that he couldn’t win because his friends were playing another game he had ended up in his own funeral.

  • “…his success had occupied him so wholly that he had quite forgotten that success had to be clinched by that final dash to victory…”

This quote represents the feelings of Ravi throughout all the story. First,  he wanted to succeed and for that reason he was happy and enthusiastic. He felt as if he was the best hide and sick player. But then, when he realized that for succeeding he needed to finish the game, that was the moment he realized he was not the best player because he had not touched the wall to be a winner.

  •  He…wondered how many more creatures were watching him, waiting to reach out and touch him, the stranger.

    The following quote shows how Ravi was feeling when hiding on the shelter, afraid of the dark and all the animals that could be hiding with him. He saw Raghu as the stranger who was trying to catch and touch him and the animals and creepy things he imagined were the creatures.
  • It took them a minute to grasp what he was saying, even who he was. They had quite forgotten him.

    Ravi had been forgotten. Alone in the shelter after long hours of being hided in the dark he was still playing the game, but his friends didn’t, they were already starting to play another game. As he came out of the shed and shouted that he had won and the other children stared at him in amazement, the fantasy that he had created crushed and he ended up humiliated.
  • It was an insect…exploring him.

    Ravi has chosen to hide on the unused shed. It was seldom opened and filled with the detritus of the households broken chairs and tables, old buckets and such like. He had never been inside when it was lit up, much less in pitch darkness like now. The smells emanating from the inside suggested there were different sorts of creatures hiding  in there. Ravi was glad he had got away from Raghu but also terrified by the spooky insides of the shed where nothing was visible. But there was something he felt crawling at the back of his neck, a spider!
  • No life stirred at this arid time of day

    The following quote shows the weather at India where the whole story takes place. Desai provides very vivid imagery such as this throughout the story to remind us of the dogged, unforgiving heat by direct description.
  • To defeat Raghu…and to be the winner…would be thrilling beyond imagination.

This quote directly illustrates the theme of fantasy vs reality because it represent the part when Ravi was going to win and was so proud of himself that he didn’t realize how long he had been hiding. It represents his fantasy of being as good as the older kids.
