The document "Demographic of the Passengers: Deaths, Survivals, Nationality, and Life Boat Occupancy," This should be the last source read. This is because you can understand the amount of deaths and "classification" of the people who died. It showed that a high percentage of survivors were woman and/or part of first class. It also gave evidence that Americans had the highest number of survivors. ______________________________________ I thought this was an important source to include because it shows demographics of people who died. This is important so people understand some passengers were favored over others.
In the text "Titanic: As Told by the Survivors," the author explains different points of views from multiple survivors. This should be the third read source so people can understand what happen from reliable sources. The article mentioned how some people felt the dark aura coming from the boat and predicted the event. They also wrote about how some women had to survive without their husbands, Then finally the author explained how there wasn't chaos right after the Titanic hit the iceberg. ______________________________________ This is important to include so that people can have a better understanding of what happened. When you hear different views, reactions, thoughts, etc you can more deeply understand the topic
The article "First Class Life on the Titanic," by Diana Leagh Matthews, describes how the richest people on the Titanic lived. This should be the second read source because it shows how some people boarded on the titanic. It also shows how well they were treated based on the amount of activity and food they received. It demonstrated how special the ship was based on the number of wealthy people aboard. ______________________________________ The reason this source is important is so people can understand how the highest class spent their time on the Titanic. This is important so that people know how fancy and rare it was to ride this ship.
In the article, "The Man Who Found the Titanic: A Tale of a Secret Expedition" Andrew Carter explains how it was Robert Ballard's dream to find the sunken Titanic. He starts out by talking about how his dream started young, and then how it was accidentally the Navy's fault the ship was found. The author ends with talking about the debate whether or not to salvage the artifacts in the ship. ______________________________________ This is an important article because you can see how the Titanic was found. I think this is the first source to read, because this talks about it was started. The beginning of our knowledge. This an event of significance because without it we wouldn't know very much about the Titanic.
