This is a timeline of all the important dates that are required for 8th Grade U.S. History in Texas. This directly aligns with TEK 8.1(C) Explain the significance of the following dates: 1607, 1620, 1776, 1787, 1803, and 1861-1865. A few additional events have been added such as; 1777, 1781, 1791, July 1-3 1864, and July 4 1863. The last page of the document shows an example of how I setup my timeline in the classroom. I keep this up all year for students to use as a reference and see our progression throughout the year of U.S. History. All student feedback I have gotten says that it is extremely helpful and a nice visual reminder to connect back to their learning. I also print two slides per page and have students include it in their interactive binders to use as a reference when they are working on homework or projects outside of the classroom.
