Students then look at data showing the different social classes aboard the Titanic and the mortality rates of the passengers. Students use cross-curricular skills and produce a graph showing this data and then using closed questioning for direction students explain the patterns they notice between mortality rates and class of passenger/sex and age of passengers.
