It’s a toe in the water of internet-using instruction. Here’s a syllabus for a 7th grade Texas history class at Pin Oak Middle School in the Houston Independent School district.
Notice that this class, as many in Texas do, puts the geography unit up front, not quite isolated from the rest of the class. Regardless of how well geography is covered, I think we end up shorting the subject its due.
Kudos to Pin Oak MS, to Mr. Gomez, and I hope to see more.
(Surely there is a class in Texas that is farther along in integrating the internet into the Texas history curriculum — point them to us, Dear Readers?)
