"I teach 5th, 6th ,7th,and 8th graders mixed together. We did your Titanic mock
trial. It was excellent. We made exhibits of where each ship was in the
ocean in relation to the Titanic, the route, and diagrams of the ship. Everyone
dressed in costume! We added a few witnesses from the list of survivors off
internet sights. White Star lines won, because the children felt that they had
provided Hans a seat in a boat and he got out on his own free will. [But,
why voluntarily get out of a half empty lifeboat, if you did not think you were
ordered out?AKO] Thank you for this fresh and current information that fits
so well into Gardners theory of Multiple intelligences so current in gifted
". . . a great way to get students using web resources on a topic they're
currently interested in and to learn about legal processes at the same time."
"I am a high school English teacher in Las Vegas, NV and am interested in
a mock trial. I am very intrigued by the one you have put on the internet
about the Titanic, and plan to share it with colleagues . . ."
"Thank you very much for sharing the Titanic mock trial. My 7th grade
students and I are doing it today! After a week or so preparation
and guidance from me..the kids "thought" they were prepared. Boy,, were
they surprised. I did not prove to be a very amiable judge..and made them
"I just want to congratulate you on a great website."
"Thank you for this wonder site. I am going to try it out as
a team-building exercise for my 8th grade classes."
"What a WONDERFUL site !"
