This is a power point for Chapter 7, Sections 1-3 in the Prentice Hall America History of Our Nation Beginnings Through 1877. It is aligned with the notes I give students (taken from the chapter and also available.) and contains journal prompts from the syllabus (also available). For those not using the Prentice Hall book, it covers the following topics: State Constitutions, The Articles of the Confederation, The Land Ordinance of 1785, The Northwest Ordinance of 1787, Shay's Rebellion, The Large State Plan, The Small State Plan, The Great Compromise, The 3/5 Compromise, and the issues with ratifying the Constitution. Photo credits are now on the slides themselves, not separate slides. If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Note: Display pictures have a different font than actual Powerpoint due to the difference between ppt (display) and pptx (actual).
