The Wreck of the Titan & Der Untergang der Titanic am 15. April 1912 Dieses Buch erzählt die Geschichte von zwei Schiffsunglücken. Das eine hat sich real ereignet und das zweite ist der Phantasie eines Schriftstellers entsprungen. Die Namen dieser Schiffe lauten RMS Titanic und Titan. Im Jahr 1898 (mit einer Nachbearbeitung im Jahr 1912) veröffentlichte der Schriftsteller Morgan Robertson eine Geschichte über eine schreckliche Katastrophe auf hoher See. Der damals größte Ozeandampfer Titan rammte einen Eisberg und versank im Nordatlantik, wobei fast alle Passagiere und Besatzungsmitglieder ihr Leben verloren. Klingt das nicht irgendwie vertraut? Angefangen mit den Namen der Schiffe. Oder die Größe? Und natürlich die ganzen Umstände des Untergangs. Es sind wirklich erstaunliche Ähnlichkeiten in der Geschichte der fiktiven TITAN mit der realen TITANIC zu entdecken. In diesem Buch ist sowohl die Geschichte der Titan in der englischen Originalversion abgedruckt als auch viele Details zum Untergang der Titanic (in deutscher Sprache).

RMS Titanic takes us behind the panelled doors of the Titanic’s elegant private suites to present compelling, memorable portraits of her most notable passengers, including many prominent Canadians. Canadian historian Hugh Brewster seamlessly interweaves personal narratives of the lost liner’s most fascinating people with a haunting account of the fateful maiden crossing. Employing scrupulous research, he accurately depicts the ship’s brief life and tragic end, with the very latest thinking on everything from when and how the lifeboats were loaded to the last tune played by the orchestra. Among the many Canadians onboard were Harry Markland Molson, Lady Duff-Gordon, Charles Hays and Arthur Peuchen. With them, we gather on the Titanic’s sloping deck on that cold, starlit night and observe their all-too-human reactions as the disaster unfolds. More than ever, we ask ourselves, what would we have done?

This teacher-friendly resource addresses one of the most important critical reading skills in the Common Core State Standards --reading across multiple texts. As the world grows ever more complicated, students more than ever need to become skillful at reading multiple sources, comparing, contrasting, and integrating texts. Responding specifically to Standards 7 and 9, this guide shows teachers how to work with students as they read, think about, critique, and evaluate multiple texts, including narrative and informational, print, graphic, and video, hard copy and online. The authors provide strategies for helping students answer text-dependent questions, find evidence in a text, and scan for information. Model lessons developed and taught by the authors and their professional colleagues will be especially useful to teachers whether they are beginning or expanding their own teaching of multiple texts.

The sinking of the ocean liner Titanic in 1912 was one of the most famous events of the twentieth century. The ship was the largest and most luxurious passenger liner of the age. While she was being built, Titanic was described as “practically unsinkable.” Yet she went down on her maiden voyage after striking an iceberg. More than 1,500 passengers and crew members perished in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Nearly all died because the ship didn’t carry enough lifeboats. Yet according to the shipping regulations at the time, Titanic actually carried more lifeboats than she was legally required to. Many people also believe that the ship was traveling too fast. Yet her captain wasn’t doing anything different than nearly every other liner at that time. The sinking attracted worldwide media interest. This interest has never lessened. The loss of the Titanic is just as fascinating today as it was on the day it occurred.

Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage takes us behind the paneled doors of the Titanic’s elegant private suites to present compelling, memorable portraits of her most notable passengers. The intimate atmosphere onboard history’s most famous ship is recreated as never before. The Titanic has often been called “an exquisite microcosm of the Edwardian era,” but until now, her story has not been presented as such. In Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage, historian Hugh Brewster seamlessly interweaves personal narratives of the lost liner’s most fascinating people with a haunting account of the fateful maiden crossing. Employing scrupulous research and featuring 100 rarely-seen photographs, he accurately depicts the ship’s brief life and tragic denouement, presenting the very latest thinking on everything from when and how the lifeboats were loaded to the last tune played by the orchestra. Yet here too is a convincing evocation of the table talk at the famous Widener dinner party held in the Ritz Restaurant on the last night. And here we also experience the rustle of elegant undergarments as first-class ladies proceed down the grand staircase in their soigné evening gowns, some of them designed by Lady Duff Gordon, the celebrated couterière, who was also on board. Another well-known passenger was the artist Frank Millet, who led an astonishing life that seemed to encapsulate America’s Gilded Age—from serving as a drummer boy in the Civil War to being the man who made Chicago’s White City white for the 1893 World Exposition. His traveling companion Major Archibald Butt was President Taft’s closest aide and was returning home for a grueling fall election campaign that his boss was expected to lose. Today, both of these once-famous men are almost forgotten, but their ship-mate Margaret Tobin Brown lives on as “the Unsinkable Molly Brown,” a name that she was never called during her lifetime. Millionaires John Jacob Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, writer Helen Churchill Candee, movie actress Dorothy Gibson, aristocrat Noelle, the Countess of Rothes, and a host of other travelers on this fateful crossing are also vividly brought to life within these pages. Through them, we gain insight into the arts, politics, culture, and sexual mores of a world both distant and near to our own. And with them, we gather on the Titanic’s sloping deck on that cold, starlit night and observe their all-too-human reactions as the disaster unfolds. More than ever, we ask ourselves, “What would we have done?”

Nach dem großen Erdbeben in San Francisco ("Gefahr in der Feuerstadt" in dieser Nr.) erleben Anne und Philipp nun eine 2. berühmte Katastrophe der Moderne. Schon das Titelbild mit dem Sternenhimmel und dem Eisberg deutet es an: Das ist die Nacht, in der die "Titanic" sinkt. Es dauert aber eine Weile, bis das auch die Kinder merken. Sie sind gekommen, um ein Geschenk zu bekommen, das die böse Magie bekämpft, die Morgans Freiheit bedroht. Hilfsbereit wie immer retten sie ein Geschwisterpaar vor dem Tod und bekommen das rettende Geschenk. Erst im letzten Moment können sie sich mit dem magischen Baumhaus in Sicherheit bringen. Die schlicht und geradlinig erzählte Geschichte transportiert doch einige beherzenswerte Botschaften: Hilfsbereitschaft und Mitleid. Und wie wichtig Bücher sind, denn ohne sie könnte das Baumhaus die Kinder nie in andere Zeiten bringen. Nett ist auch das umgekehrte Rollenklischee mit dem draufgängerischen Mädchen und dem nachdenklicheren Jungen. Als Lesefutter überall möglich und sicher begehrt.. Anne und Philipp kommen auf die "Titanic". Sie retten ein Geschwisterpaar, aber wird es ihnen gelingen, selbst rechtzeitig vom Schiff zu kommen? Ab 8.
