Through the notes and video, students learn about the battle of the Alamo starting with Steve Austin starting the first American settlement in Texas, Santa Anna's policies and infringements on their rights (including ending slavery), the amazing battle at the Alamo (and the truth behind the myth!), and how the massacre that took place led Texans to win their independence in the battle of San Jacinto.
✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.

After the video, notes, and quiz, students read a primary source, William B. Travis' letter "To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World," and answer scaffolded questions to think critically about this document and improve reading comprehension.
