These lessons allow the students to make thematic connections, identify practical applications, and simply have fun. Part III is a culmination project which demonstrates student knowledge of the Titanic by creating a "Living Museum". Students research the people that were aboard the Titanic and then write scripts and create displays for presentations. Part IV is a study guide for A Night to Remember by Walter Lord.
