During the late 1800s and early 1900s an era of reform spread across the United States. Since Texas wasn't highly industrialized
at this time compared to other parts of the United States, Texas did not experience the extent of the reform movements other
parts of the United States did. The students will analyze and evaluate the reform movements in Texas by making a broadside
of a reform movement they have researched.
The student will be able to show an understanding of early Texas oil discoveries by developing a CD cover, complete with track
titles and artists, relating them to oil discoveries and evaluating and justifying their relationships.
The student will demonstrate their knowledge of Texas cattle drives and major ranches in Texas by developing a visual display
online, depicting cowboy journal entries and research information over a major early Texas ranch.
