Star of the Republic Lesson Plans.
The Star of the Republic Museum (Washington, Texas), the Historical Museum of the Texas Republic, has created lesson plans to enhance student understanding of Texas state history. Regardless of the opportunity to visit the museum, the lessons can enrich the classroom experience by making objects from the museum accessible to students. The educational packet contains four lessons: (1) "Gone to Texas" (Texas Broadside); (2) "Letters to Home" (Letter 1 from A. Mitchell; Letter 2 from A. Mitchell); (3) "Spreading the Word" (Excerpts from Gail Borden, Pioneer; Washington Hand Press); and (4) "Quest for Freedom" (Pictures by Charles Shaw; Major Events of the Revolution Chart Answer Key; Major Events of the Revolution Chart). Each lesson cites an instructional objective and appropriate grade level; addresses Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) social studies standards; lists materials and resources needed; discusses how to prepare for the lesson; details the teaching procedure; and suggests extension and assessment activities.
