Reflection: Lesson Planning The Titanic: Timeline of a Tragedy - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


This lesson could easily be combined with yesterday’s lesson, “Titanic: The Iceberg.” If you find that your students have been keeping pace with the daily assignments and have very little unfinished work, this would be a good place to combine lessons if needed. Although I always appreciate extra time to go back and re-read or revisit topics, I do understand times when adjustments need to be made due to unavailable computer labs, unexpected fire drills, or other interruptions in schedules. Because my classes had fallen behind in their research and needed additional time on the computers, I decided to keep the two lessons separate. However, as always, feel free to adjust these lessons to best fit the needs of your students.
