The lesson plan was developed collaboratively by Texas History curriculum writer Beth Hudson (Austin ISD), Dr. Bryan Stone, author of The Chosen Folks: Jews on the Frontiers of Texas; and PEI professionals. It utilizes standards in multiple strands, e.g., religious freedom; frontier expansion, cattle, oil, and railroad industries; and civil rights, to explore the impact made to and on Texas by multiple unique racial, ethnic, and religious immigrant groups, e.g., African-Americans, Czechs, Germans, French, Jews, and Vietnamese. Resources about the Jewish experience are provided as examples.
