Peer Review 3 Week 6

Link to blog post: ttps://

Beatrice, I thought your blog post this week was an excellent critical piece on education in the Victorian Era. Through your comprehensive description, I was able to form a mental image of the mid-nineteenth-century classroom and how this compares to the classroom that Dickens is describing in Hard Times. You were able to provide a sketch of education or lack thereof during this time while weaving in your personal experiences and opinions making the piece both informative and interesting to read. It was confronting to read that children who were considered ‘slow’ at school were forced to wear a dunce hat and it got me thinking about how far education has come since this time. Maybe next time just be a little more mindful of your punctuation and word choice as there were a few grammatical errors but other than that I really enjoyed your piece and can’t wait to read more from you. Well done!
