Dracula

Students from 3º ESO B/C have been reading Dracula and working on it in two different ways. On the one hand, 3º B have been working on a task to show the difference between Victorian women and women nowadays. On the other hand, 3º C had to try and relate Dracula to Banksy’s graffiti to show how greed is still present in society and how the desire to advance at all costs can also have negative consequences. However, before organising the groups for such tasks, we had to work on the reading and learn about the characteristics of the Gothic novel or the ideal woman in Victorian England. We used the following reading guide to prove that Bram Stoker’s novel is not just a story about vampires: Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 13.56.50 How did 3º B show the evolution of women since Victorian times? They had to imagine that they were Jonathan in the 19th century and Mina in the 21st. Jonathan was a prisoner in Dracula’s castle and Mina wasn’t going  to sit and patiently wait for him like a 19th woman would do. She was going to stand up and make sure she wasn’t going to be there forever. They did a great job.

Most of them try to show that the desire to advance at all costs without bearing in mind other people’s feelings or opinions is not always a positive thing. Here are some of their awesome works: Screen Shot 2015-05-06 at 10.45.12 Screen Shot 2015-05-06 at 10.45.20 Screen Shot 2015-05-06 at 10.45.28
