    Iam teaching British Literature in a small high school in St Johns, Arizona. I just came across your blog while searching for ways to connect the poetry and novels of the Victorian Age to the interests of my students. While my usual teaching area is Spanish, this year I have one class of senior English. I assured my students that we would be learning together this year! It is almost over and I have fallen in love with the course! Next year, my schedule may not include teaching this course, but I will not leave it alone. I appreciate your insights. The simple ideas you provide in the preliminary sections of the blog have provided splendid ideas. Thank you!
