As teachers, we may often have to provide sources for our students to carry out mini projects (this obviously depends very much on teaching context and students' age range). A wonderfully rich source for projects which centers around the Victorians and Romantics in the UK, can be found at Discovering Literature: Romantics & Victorians of the British Library.
Discovering Literature: Romantics & Victorians offers a rich variety of resources ranging from authors of the period, popular themes to articles on Romantic and Victorian literature.
For educators, there are specific teaching resources which indicate the age range of students, subject (English of English Literature) and accompanying theme. There is also a section with videos - which for ELT, for example, makes another interesting resource for listening activities (videos also include a transcript).
Below is a video on the origin of a Christmas Carol:
The British Library also has other resources for teachers and students which you can find here . From English to English literature to history and citizenship, this is a great resource to turn to whenever planning lessons with a focus on historic events.
