There are three lessons on the Constitutional Convention included
Day 1: Introduction and Early Debates
Day 2: Debate over Representation- Great Compromise
Day 3: Debates over Slavery- 3/5ths Compromise and Slave Trade Compromise as well as other issues/end of convention and signing
There is a 14 page skit that will be used across the three lessons. This skit allows for 20/21 characters all based on actual historical figures.Students will love being a part of this history and they will get a deeper understanding of the topic than if they just learned about it
Each day there is a Powerpoint with a few opening questions (on first day a link to a video is also included) then students will participate in a skit. In between acts students will answer review questions. These questions will ensure that all students pay attention and also serve as a check for understanding.
Each day the portions of the skit will take about 20-25 minutes.
Everything prepared and ready to go: name signs for student desks, a skit for each character with their lines and actions highlighted, visual handouts, a set of notes with vocabulary, review questions and graphic organizers included.
