UT Austin has created classroom-ready curriculum units utilizing primary source documents, area studies content, and classroom activities for middle and high school students. Where possible, they have used primary source documents to allow voices from the region to speak for themselves, without filter, and to encourage students to develop skill sets in analyzing primary documents, reading for bias, and constructing a point/counterpoint argument.

All curriculum units are designed to align with the TEKS, and are closely aligned to national standards in history and geography.  However, UT Austin encourages you to adapt the activities to fit your classroom and your state standards.

Other instructional resources are available through this portal include the following:
