I teach a wonderful bunch of 7th graders Texas history this year. This is the second time I have had the pleasure of teaching these students as I also had them in for U.S. history when they were in 5th grade.
These kids are the brightest bunch of historians I have ever known!
Due to the socioeconomic status of of my students, most never get the chance to leave Johnson County. This is why I want to provide them with an opportunity this year for an authentic learning experience they will never forget with a trip to Austin.
This trip will be an authentic learning experience for my students. They will get to experience Texas history live and in person with this trip. As many of my students do not have the money to travel or take vacations, this will also be a first for many of them.
The experience of traveling to Austin to see the State Capitol as well as spending time at Pioneer farms will really make the history of our great state come alive for these kids and leave them with a deeper understanding of the past and present in Texas.
This is a trip that will give my students life-long memories and, I hope, help to create life-long learners.
