Primary Sources in Texas History

Now more than ever the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills stress the use of a variety of rich primary source material such as autobiographies, speeches, letters, diaries, music, architecture, and images in the classroom. You’ll find no shortage of resources at any of these reliable websites maintained by museums, historical sites, libraries, universities, and local and state historical societies.  In many cases you can navigate directly to original materials ready to print and distribute to your students.  Some sites may also feature prepared activities to plug immediately into your lesson plan.
