Market Place Activity: What can we learn about British society from the Titanic?

Market Place Activity: What can we learn about British society from the Titanic?

If you are looking for an outstanding lesson which ticks all the boxes on collaborative learning then this beautifully illustrated market place activity on the Titantic is a must have for those teachers looking for something engaging and different to add to their toolkit of great lessons. As you can see from the preview slides, the tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by ‘ragging’ or grading the difficulty of the slides / sources so that the learners can chose their level of challenge. When you purchase this resource you will receive a twenty three slide presentations which includes a snowballing starter, information slides for the market place activity and a plenary. The sources for the market place activity looks at conditions on board the Titantic for the different classes as well as statistics on their survival rates. It is interesting to note that the myth of women and children first, only really applied to the first class passengers. I have also included a few links to relevant clips on the internet that have been carefully selected. The aims and objectives for these resources are as follows, but they can be easily tweaked for a number of different investigations on this topic: Know: What was life like on-board for the passengers on the Titanic? Understand: What can historians learn about British society from the Titanic? Evaluate: How fair was British society in 1900? Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: What was life like on-board the Titanic? Explain: What can historians learn about British society from the Titanic? Analyse: How fair was British society in 1900?
