This collection of materials is an attempt to give the teacher of United States history from Reconstruction to the present ideas for lessons that integrate Texas history into the course. There are three types of materials. The first type is an essay describing some of the main themes of U.S./Texas history that can be employed. Another type is short descriptions of interesting links between U.S. and Texas history intended to be shared with the students or developed into longer lessons by the teacher. The third and most numerous type consists of lessons that may be used to illustrate U.S. history by using Texas history examples.
