Product Description
You can save $3.00 by purchasing this bundle instead of each of the individual differentiated instruction lesson plans and PowerPoints. You will get three PowerPoints and three differentiated instruction lesson plans on the Articles of Confederation. All have been recently revised on or around 10/16/2013. All links worked at that time. I do not guarantee the links because I do not control the internet.

These lessons and PowerPoints are based on the NYS social studies curriculum and standards. They include the following content:

The Articles of Confederation and the Critical Period

1. historical precedent: the Albany Plan of Union
2. Development of state constitutions
3. Inadequacy of Continental Congress as a national government

B. Development of a formal plan of government
1. Draft and debate in Congress, 1776-1777
2. Ratification by the states, 1778-1781; period of operation, 1781-1789

C. The structure of government under the Articles of Confederation
1. Congress was the only branch of government
2. Each state had equal representation
3. Congress's power under the Articles included: a. Making war and peace b. conducting foreign and Native American Indian affairs c. The settlement of disputes between and among states d. issuance of currency and borrowing

D. The Articles suffered from many weaknesses
1. Indirect representation
2. No coercive power: decision more advisory than binding; e.g., Shays' Rebellion
3. Lack of national executive and judicial functions
4. Lack of taxing power
5. Difficulty in passing legislation

E. The Articles did have several achievements and contribution
1. The Land Ordinance of 1785
