Remembering the R.M.S. Titanic


Want to pair a historical event with fiction?  Lauren Tarshis is the author of a YA book "I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic".  http://www.laurentarshis.com/titanic

Think about how excited your students will be when they start to dig into the primary sources connected to the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic.  The Library of Congress has put together a great collection of primary sources for you to use in your classroom.   The National Archives also has records you might want to investigate.
