Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Titanic: Opinion Practice One - Section 3: Whole Group Writing


I was prepared to complete two example pieces today: one stating that the Titanic was prepared to set sail and one stating it was not. Although this could have been done several ways, I had two charts prepared – one on the SmartBoard and one on old fashioned chart paper. This way, students who were of each opinion could keep pace with the responses while I wrote. Rather than switching back and forth between screens or charts, this would have allowed both responses to visible at all times. It also would have allowed both to be available for reference while students worked independently.

Objective: SWBAT use what they've learned in their Titanic research to write a short opinion piece.

Big Idea: Today's prompt is, "Was the Titanic prepared to set sail?". Students must use what they know about the disaster to decide if, in fact, the Titanic was really ready for her first voyage.
