Product Description
Students read 4 opinions on the annexation of Texas (2 for and 2 against), the text of the Joint Resolution for Annexation, they analyze 2 images, answer 21 questions, and complete a creative task. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!

Sample questions include:
--How did Lamar justify why annexation had been favored immediately after the Texas Revolution?
--Using prior knowledge and inferring from the text, what might happen if for a third time Texas is rejected by the United States (according to Houston)?
--Is Anson Jones for or against annexation? Identify the part of his quote that most directly supports your answer. On a scale of 1-10, how well does Jones make his case? Explain your answer.
--Why do you think the Resolution includes the phrase, "with proper evidence of its adoption by the people of said Republic of Texas?"
--Explain the importance of the items detailed in the third paragraph. Why would the United States have insisted on it being part of the annexation resolution?
