Titanic Research Unit 2013
Last year, Ms. Ginther, the media specialist at JEJ Moore, and Ms. White, the Hurricane 7th grade English teacher, worked cooperatively to teach research skills to the Hurricane English students during the months of April and May. The research unit incorporated "best practices for research" using the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic disaster to capture student interest. Students selected topics, which fell into one of the following categories: The People of the Titanic, The Mighty Ship, The Disaster Strikes, Discovery: Finding the Titanic, and Historical Fiction. Students then used their research to create original short stories, essays, PowerPoint presentations, and three dimensional models. We are about to start the process again for the 2012-2013 school year. So mark your calendars to learn more about the research process that continues to evolve at JEJ Moore Middle School.
