Product Description
Students must be able to synthesize information and make judgments about what they read. They must be able to form an opinion and use details from the text to support their opinion.

In this activity, students respond to a writing prompt asking them to be the judge and determine who is to blame for the Titanic disaster. The writing prompt mirrors prompts often found on state assessments so that students are in the habit of responding in this manner.

Here's what's included in this lesson:
*A writing prompt similar to what is found on state assessments
*Lined paper for the student response
*A writing frame to help struggling students get started
*A grading rubric
*Exemplar response
*VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS (8:02) that explain the activity to students and includes a reading and explanation of the exemplar response
(This is the perfect instructional solution so that you don't have to continue to repeat the instructions yourself. It is also helpful in catching up students who were absent the day that you started this assignment.)

This evaluative assignment is part of my comprehensive unit on the Titanic: The Titanic: A Comprehensive Unit, but can be used as a stand-alone assignment after students have completed research over the Titanic.

Enjoy!
