A Texas Sampler Workbook (Teacher's Guide) by Lisa Waller Rogers


A Texas Sampler Workbook (Teacher's Guide) by Lisa Waller Rogers

A Texas Sampler is a tribute to the remarkable people who settled Texas. Excerpts from diaries, letters, and memoirs written by real Texans reveal the history of this great state. The workbook and text together create a package that dovetails with the Texas state-mandated curriculum requirements in Texas history at the fourth- and seventh-grade levels. The text provides the classroom teacher with much-needed primary source material, the workbook is a set of blackline masters to accompany the thirty-two chapters found in the book. Each activity is easy to use and easy to grade. In addition, opportunities for higher level thinking, writing practice, and the use of graphic organizers abound. Also included in this title are answer keys and correlations to the fourth- and seventh-grade TEKS and TAAS objectives for writing, math, and reading.
