My students read 'Exploring the Titanic' by Robert Ballard as part of our oceanography unit. The students are asked to pretend that they were hired to design a brochure advertising the ship's features prior to its voyage. This demonstrates what the students have learned about the structure and the features of the Titanic. After reading several chapters, the students design paper and pencil sketches of their brochures. They include many facts and bits of information about the Titanic. Once they finish their paper draft and proofread it, they create the brochure using Print Shop on the computer. Students can add pictures to their brochures too. We then print them on paper that's specifically designed for brochures and display them.
