Product Description
Constitutional Compromises
The idea of compromise is almost unheard of in the world of students today. Perhaps this lesson on the compromises that took place during the Constitutional Convention might give the student just a little idea of what it means to compromise. No one felt stronger about their individual beliefs than the delegates to the convention, but in the end, they had to give up some of those ideas and find a middle ground that both sides could accept. There would be no Constitution without those compromises.

1. Talk to students about the meaning of the word “compromise” and try to relate it to their personal lives. Assign the first sheet and have the students explain a compromise from their own lives. DISCUSS and COLLECT the pages.
2. Assign the rest of the compromise sheets in the lesson and tell them to use their textbook or reading materials you provide to complete the diagrams about the compromises that helped the delegates write the United States Constitution.
