Quick Write
Imagine that you are on a ship that is sinking. What would your reaction be? Do you think you would be able to stay calm, or do you think you would become hysterical?
If you are male you have to allow women and children to board the lifeboats first.
If you are a female you are allowed to board the lifeboats first, but there are limited lifeboats, and your safety is not guaranteed.
Make sure that you use the five senses and that you use as many descriptive details as possible.

Journal Entry
Imagine that you are either a passenger or a crew member on the Titanic as it sets sail for the first time on April 10, 1912. Through the eyes of a first, second, third class passenger, or the eyes of a crew member (other than the captain or the messengers) describe what you see, hear, how you feel emotionally, etc. Write in paragraph format in the point of view of the person you identify with. You do NOT have to be one of the characters from the story.
Their goal was to give the White Star Line
in a competitive edge in the Atlantic
passenger trade with several gigantic ships
whose accommodations would be last word
in comfort and elegance. pg.102
Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Jack Thayer from Philadelphia was trying
out the soft mattres on the large bed in his cabin. The first-class
trying out the soft mattress on the large bed in his cabin. The first class rooms his family had reserved for themselves and their maid had thick carpets, carved wooden panels on the walls, and marble sinks. As his parents were getting settled in their adjoining stateroom, Jack decided to explore his fantastic ship. pg.103
In the radio room, Bride and Phillips now knew how serious
the accident was and were feverishly sending out calls for help.
pg. 111
The cries of hundreds of people struggling in the icy cold water, crying for help with a cry we knew could could not be answered. In Thayer's words, they became "a long continuous wailing chant." Before long this ghastly wailing stopped, as the freezing water took its toll.
The ship had watertight compartments
that would allow her to float
indefinitely. pg. 105
After that came the second class--
teachers, merchants, and professionals
of moderate means like Ruth's family.
pg.105
In 1912, passengers on ocean liners
thought it was a real novelty to send
postcard-style messages to friends at
home from the middle of the Atlantic
.
It was an eerie prophecy of terrible things
to come. pg. 100
Feverishly
In a way marked by intense emotion or activity
Bride and Phillips now
knew how serious the
accident was and were
feverishly sending out calls
for help. pg. 111

The temperature of the Atlantic Ocean was
31 degrees when the Titanic sank.
Hypothermia
Is a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature. Normal body temperature is around 98.6 F. Hypothermia occurs as your body temperature passes below 95 F.

Hypothermia is most often caused by exposure to cold weather or immersion in a cold body of water.

Signs and Symptoms of Hypothermia Include
Shivering
Slurred Speech
Abnormally Slow Breathing
Cold, Pale, Skin
Loss of Coordination
Fatigue
Confusion or Memory Loss
Bright Red Skin
The ship is sinking and you are unable to make it on a lifeboat.
You strap on your life jacket, and you are forced to jump overboard into the frigid Atlantic Ocean. You are currently floating in the water waiting for help. Using the five senses describe what you are feeling, tasting, hearing, seeing, and smelling.

You must write for the full five minutes. Be as descriptive as possible, remember you want to show not tell when writing. Write in complete sentences.
Quick Write
Dexterity - Skill in performing tasks esp. with the hands.
Ice Activity
Students will hold their arms in ice water for two minutes, or for as long as they can handle it. Students will then try to find the penny at the bottom of the bucket.
Once you have finished the ice activity go back to your Quick Write and review your writing. After this experience, and learning about the effects of hypothermia, what details can you add to make your writing more vivid?
After three and a half hours, the Carptathia reached the last recorded position of the Titanic.
Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse
Facts about Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse
The accident killed seven people and injured dozens more
The metal stage rigging did not meet requirements.
The stage was supposed to be able to withstand wind gusts up to 68 MPH, but collapsed at wind gusts that reached 55mph.
Emergency plans determined that "an ambiguity of authority" resulted in confusion and uncertainty as officials discussed whether to postpone the concert.
Officials received multiple warnings about incoming storms.
Discussion
Create a list comparing the human errors that were made on the Titanic to those made at the Indiana State Fair. What do they have in common? How do they differ? Then discuss the decisions made in both situations. Is there a way that both disasters could have been prevented? What decisions could have been made that would have prevented these horrific tragedies from ever happening?
