Product Description
This activity is part of my full Unit bundle for westward movement and expansion! - Check out the bundle and save! - Westward Expansion Full Unit Bundle

With this lesson, students investigate the true cause of Texas Independence. It included a background reading regarding the Texas battle for Independence (with comprehension questions). They students are then provided with 5 primary sources that have been edited for clarity and comprehension. By having students discuss competing reasons why Texans declared independence, it makes the topic much more compelling! I find my students debate the issue with each other, instead of just listening to me lecture.

This lesson plan is linked with NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add standards from your state.

The zip file included a PDF version and a word version.
