Core Reading Standards 6-8
The Titanic package develops students' ability to integrate information presented in different media formats, cite evidence to support analysis, and distinguish claims supported by reason from those that are not.
They investigate the sinking of the Titanic by studying route charts, casualty figures, the lifeboat launch log, diagrams of the ship and testimonies of passengers, crew and expert witnesses.
Opportunities are provided for drama activities and for group and class discussions. A homework presentation and resource book is included for your school's VLE platform, and the pack also contains assessment and peer assessment materials and comprehensive teachers' notes.
