Product Description
Students will have the opportunity to learn about one of four different travelers (Margaret Brown, Thomas Andrews, Bruce Ismay, and Olaus Abelseth) that were aboard the Titanic the night it sank. Using four excerpts from Allan Wolf’s novel, "The Watch That Ends the Night-Voices from the Titanic", students would be assigned to a specific individual and then analyze their passenger’s perspective, tone, and their overall moral courage in the situation. Then, once students have learned about their own passenger, they would be organized into groups that included one Margaret Brown, one Thomas Andrews, one Bruce Ismay, and one Olaus Abelseth. As a group, students would share their passenger’s experience/perspective, the tone of their text excerpt and explain whether or not the passenger acted with moral courage that night. All four students would compile their passengers’ perspective, tone and demonstration of moral courage onto one document to be submitted for grading.
