Exploring the Titanic
By Robert D.Ballard
The Author's purpose for writing this book was to show the struggle and hope it took to find the

The Titanic sank April 14, 1912
The Titanic was named unsinkable
No one knew that her first voyage would also be her last

Selection Section

Text to self
I love the water and swimming and I love learning new things about the Titanic ever since first heard about it which was a little while ago so I didn't know that much about the topic and Ballard studied the ocean and, was very interested in finding the Titanic.
The End
I chose this topic because I wanted to learn more about the Titanic. I had seen pictures and I wanted to know how they found it because it seemed like an interesting topic to learn about.
I learned new ideas from reading this book. 1st new idea that I learned from reading this book was it was hard work. For example they used up all of their days to be down there because they spend most of their time looking and waiting.
The 2nd thing that I learned was that since he had a dream to find the Titanic he had to have someone believe in him, but at first nobody did it was hope that found the titanic wreckage.
The 3rd thing that I learned was if you work hard for something it will pay off, in the book it said "it was not luck. we earned it." It changed my perception of the topic by showing the struggle that everyone went through to find the Titanic.
