The Titanic has intrigued people for over 100 years! Use this interactive Titanic unit in your classroom to teach your students the five common nonfiction text structures (Description, Cause and Effect, Problem and Solution, Order and Sequence, Compare and Contrast). You can also continue to use these articles to address other standards, such as RI9 (integrating information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably). Furthermore, you could also use these documents to guide instruction during your informational writing unit! The possibilities are endless!
