Texas in Transition: Railroads, Oil, and the Rise of Urban Texas


Texas in Transition: Railroads, Oil, and the Rise of Urban Texas is intended for middle school Texas history teachers. The lesson plans and activities here will introduce students to the practice of using historical archival materials on the web, and help students learn to use documents to reach conclusions about the past. This website focuses on the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a period of intense change which transformed Texas from a predominantly rural state into a modern industrial power.
