Power point #1 is entitled: The Federalists v. The Anti-Federalists and covers the following:
In 1783, the war was over but the country was very week and its ability to survive was questionable. There was no effective government in place to meet the needs of a growing country. The Articles of Confederation were not working and it was clear that change was needed.
At the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention, the Federalists and Anti-Federalists locked horns over the whether it is better to “update” the Articles of Confederation or write a new constitution. The Federalist and the Anti-Federalist debated on the proper way forward for the country.
This power point covers the key differences in the thinking of the Federalists, who wanted a strong federal government and the Anti-federalists who did not. In the end, the United States had a new Constitution that is in effect until this day.

The Federalist Era lasted roughly from 1789 to 1801, when the Federalist Party dominated and shaped American politics. This era saw the adoption of the U.S. Constitution and the growth of a strong centralized government. This period created a whole new vocabulary to describe what was happening. In government.
This presentation contains 29 vocabulary words for the student to master. The assignment is to review each of the vocabulary words, to understand what they mean and how they became part of our vocabulary today. Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
