Product Description

This is a reader's theater activity in which students will take on the perspective of each state in the Constitutional Convention, along with George Washington. Sixteen roles in the play ensure that most of your student population participate in this activity. In creating the play, my goal was to capture the weakness of the Articles of Confederation; while simplifying the Great Compromise, the Presidential Compromise, and the 3/5th compromise. In addition, I wanted my students to be able to define the word override, explain how a bill becomes a law, and push students to take a stand with regard to the electoral college. The play has humor, but also has key vocabulary associated with forming the United States Constitution. It is an excellent way to recap the core principles of the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Questions are included that scaffold students up Bloom's Taxonomy.
