Guide for Lesson Plans: Excerpts from Curriculum Guide for Texas History

The goal of this guide is to enhance your students’ visit to the exhibit A Destined Conflict: The U.S. - Mexican War. The lessons were excerpted from Curriculum Guide for Teaching Texas History, which is available for download at Lesson documents are in PDF format for ease of downloading, but Word versions are available to teachers on request to insure modifications are simple for classroom use. Related images are at in the 4B Texas Annexation and 4C-Statehood sections. All lessons are aligned to the Texas objectives known as Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) which were revised in 2010 by the State Board of Education. Lessons were generally designed to be completed within one or two class periods. However, teachers are encouraged to modify lessons to meet the needs of the students in their unique classroom situations.
