Product Description
--Student-led -- Primary source stations -- Common Core-based -- Ready to print and use --

Who wants to spend more than one lesson teaching the Articles of Confederation? This one-day lesson can be used to give a concise explanation of the Articles of Confederation. Through the use of primary sources, students will come to understand what the Articles were, and some of the reasons why they were replaced with the Constitution.

The lesson contains primary source materials edited for students grade 8 and above, an introductory and review lecture, and corresponding student notes. The primary source readings are concise enough to be approachable for all learners, and chosen to illustrate particular problems with the Articles.
