Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room.
Foster a challenging exercise with your students as they become the lawyer in developing a case for or against White Star Line!
After doing a lengthy Titanic unit, my students formulate a case study essay. They must choose to either be part of the prosecution team (who point the blame at White Star Line) for the loss of so many lives; or the defense team (who believe White Star Line was not at fault for the sinking of Titanic). Remember, the ship was billed as "unsinkable" and history shows that it certainly was! Watch as your students take a stand on who (if anyone) is truly at fault for the world's worst maritime disaster.
