Consider particular aspects from Dickens' work and represent/link to more information on them. 
Some ideas might include:
•    Child Labor in the Victorian Age
•    The Education System 
•    Inheritance Laws and Practices
•    Money Lending and the Exchange
•    Courting and Marriage
•    Poverty and the Working Class
•    The practice of working families carrying their Dinners to the Bakers to be cooked (depicted in Stave Three of the story - Cale has a recipe from that era and practice that she'd be happy to share).
•    What was it that Tiny Tim was suffering from?  (Experts have conjectured for over a century, but the most recent suggestions assert it that could have been something easily treatable through diet).

Discussion Art and Music Improvisation Workshop at Community Virtual Library

by Valerie Hill (non-member) on Sat, Oct 29, 2016 at 04:57 pm

 

 

The Community Virtual Library invites you to join us for an interesting LIVE improvisational workshop inspired by our Fall Art in Virtual Worlds Exhibit.

 
ARTS & IMPROV WORKSHOP
WEDNESDAY, NOV 2, 2016
12 - 1:15pm SLT
at  The CVL Event Space  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bradley%20University/103/33/24
 
Come have fun with us, as artists improvise from scratch using builds in response to a composer's improvisations, and vice versa.  The artists and musicians riff off of each other's creations as they unfold.
 
Marly Milena of OCTAGON:Creative Exploration is hosting this public event at CVL, and will be using voice.  Our musician, Tip Corbett, will be performing over stream as well as using voice.   Because of this,  we ask that you please arrive a few minutes early to make sure that you are able to hear both voice and stream.  Audience members must keep their mics muted, but are invited to communicate using the local chat bar.
 
Tip will be improvising to one or more paintings created by Marly.  He will also improvise to an original artist build.  After this, Tip will play an original piece, and one of more artists will build spontaneously based on what they hear.  Each musical selection will be limited to ten minutes.  Near the end of the session, those in the audience are invited to participate in a collaborative build while Tip plays.
 
It will be a fun time for all!  Please feel free to invite any of your art and/or music loving friends.  Look forward to seeing you there on November 2!
