 Key Stage 3 English, Year 7, Unit 5: Writing
Objectives                                                          Outcomes
Pupils should:                                                      Pupils should:
 develop different ways of generating, organising and shaping  plan writing and
  ideas, using a range of planning formats or methods (Unit 5)        develop ideas
 Video lesson starter: http://www.teachers.tv/videos/learning-from-the-news-a-titanic-
 A whiteboard to show the video on
 Transcripts from page 2-3 of this lesson plan
 Whole class activity: Show the video lesson starter
    http://www.teachers.tv/videos/learning-from-the-news-a-titanic-class-divide while
    watching, ask pupils to write down five facts about The Titanic

Main activity 1
 Whole class activity: Ask pupils what else they know about The Titanic (it was meant to
  be unsinkable, etc). What do they think of the fact that most of the survivors were rich?
 Written activity: Show the pupils Source 1 (full transcripts on page 2 of this lesson plan)
  Ask them to answer: What clues are there from this list that this is the First Class
  passenger list, not the Third? Most of the people on this list do not have an occupation
  listed, why do you think this is? This list shows HJ Allison, his wife and his daughter. We
  know that JJ Astor travelled with his wife Madeline, but she is not listed beside him. Why
  do you think this is?
 Now show Source 2 (full transcript on page 3 of this lesson plan). Get them to answer:
  What countries have these people come from? How many different occupations are there
  listed? What other differences can you see between the 1st and 3rd class lists? Why?
 Now show Source 3a and Source 3b and get them to compare the two types of
  accommodation and write down three sentences to describe the differences. Which
  would they have preferred to stay in?

Main activity 2
 Pair work: In pairs, get the pupils to decide what kind of passenger each one is going to
  be. What kind of person are they? Get them to role play a conversation together
 Written activity: Get the pupils to write a 500-word fictional diary entry, ‘My first day on
  the Titanic’

 Homework activity: Get them to finish off their diary entry

                                                                            Page 1 of 5
