In this assignment, students will be able to explain how the U.S. Constitution provided for a stronger federal government than the Articles of Confederation. It will go back and review the Articles of Confederation (please download my free Articles of Confederation power point-which will be aligned to the worksheet). Then I have carefully taken excerpts from the U.S. Constitution to show how the constitution provided for a stronger federal government in the areas in which the Articles of Confederation was weak in. I have two assignments for you. If you have a strong group of students or you want to give them a challenge, students will attempt to translate the excerpts from the U.S. Constitution. If, not I have provided a unique translation of the U.S. Constitution. You can also use the translation worksheet for your ELL or Special Ed. students. It also serves as an answer key for you. Lastly, there are open ended questions which formally assesses students.
