The final and most challenging episode yet of 24 Hours in The Past sees six celebrities destitute and penniless in Victorian Britain. With no break since they were sacked from the potteries, they now have no food or shelter. In Victorian Britain that meant only one thing – the workhouse.


They are stripped of their belongings and their identities. Left wearing the workhouse uniforms and rough wooden shoes, the workhouse inmates are forced to work harder than they thought possible. It is a world of relentless punishment where the workhouse master deals harshly with anyone who breaks the rules.

With the men hitting rock bottom and the women refusing to share bathing water, morale is at an all-time low. Launching yet another rebellion, former minister for prisons Ann Widdecombe gets thrown into solitary confinement. The other inmates include actress Zoe Lucker, former world champion hurdler Colin Jackson, impressionist Alistair McGowan, Outnumbered actor Tyger Drew-Honey and presenter Miquita Oliver. When Colin Jackson admits that the work is too much for him, what hope do the others have!

    I figure out we should give space to our imagination notwithstanding the conditions. We would need to assist contribute by landing a position and paying for part, utilities and basic supplies. Need to set a few objectives like take a course in junior college – instructing this present reality includes dealing with the self and paying direction will recover the imagination in a matter of moments.

    Such a significant number of children would love to have that equivalent open door. What I would have done to have my instruction paid for. Also, here she is simply hurling it aside like it’s nothing. The diverse way I would have taken in life had I had my degree paid for and not needed to work all day while in college and having my evaluations endure as a result of it. Difficult to watch kids not exploiting an open door such huge numbers to just dream of.

    5 Tips to increase empathy with your students
    05/06/2013Written by Santiago Moll 88 Comments


    For those who do not know, the word Empathy comes from the Greek and means ‘what suffers’ or, what is the same, the ability of a person to understand the emotions of the other.

    This concept for me is of the utmost importance when it comes to interacting and interacting with our class students. The better we understand them, the more we will receive from them in return. This Interpersonal Intelligence , in the words of Howard Gardner , reverts directly to many of the actions that our students carry out during the school day.

    Possibly you have noticed how during the school year there are teachers who connect very quickly with the students and that happens to them year after year, while others have a more complicated relationship with their students. They are teachers who do not ” connect” with students.

    Another aspect that should not be confused is the fact that being an empathic teacher has nothing to do with being a “cool teacher” or a “coiled teacher”. No way. Empathy is something much deeper than being “cool” or “rolled up”.

    In fact, it is these teachers who start with a very good relationship with the students that over time deteriorates because they do not know how to set limits. But this is matter for another article.

    My intention with this article is to teach you five useful and simple actions to increase Empathy with your students:
    1. Learn the names. It may seem obvious, but it is something that must be given great importance. Sometimes we find teachers who, after several months, still do not know the names of their students or confuse them with assiduity.

    I know that you have heard complain to your classmates that they have many students and that it takes time to learn all the names. That is not true. In a few days you can get it if you propose it. There are lots of tricks to learn the names of the students. Some day I’ll talk about it. Another advice that I give you related to this first council is to avoid calling your students by their last name .

    Do not tell me why, but experience has taught me that a large part of students hate to be called by their last name. Certainly there are several exceptions and in that case and under the request of the student you can do it. But calling a student by his surnames does nothing more than creating a distance between you and the student due to excessive formality.
