Causes of the Texas Revolution: Mexican/Texan Talk-it-Out
Causes of the Texas Revolution: Mexican/Texan Talk-it-Out requires students to demonstrate their understanding of the Texas Revolution by participating in a debate between Texans and Mexicans and then writing a dialogue. After analyzing primary source quotes, students complete a writing for understanding activity, and create a dialogue between a Mexican and a Texan of that time period. Specific events to be discussed include the Fredonian Rebellion, Decree of April 6, 1830, the Affair at Anhuac, and the arrest of Stephen F. Austin.
