Product Description
I teach a multi-day lesson that includes a simulation of the Constitutional Convention. In order for the student to accurately represent their delegate to the convention, I have them complete this webquest on their assigned delegate.

The webquest asks them to define some words that are used during the convention, find out biographical details of the delegate, and record his feelings on the three issues that we will debate (state representation in the legislature, the slavery issue, and electing the national executive.) I provide some websites for the students to research and also ask them to include a works cited. They will then use the information gathered in the webquest on the days of the Constitutional Convention.

This assignment meets more than one MA DESE Common Core Standads for Reading and Writing in History/Social Studies. A few examples include: "Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration" and "Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary specific to domains related to history/social studies."
