Federalist Papers 10 and 51 Analysis Worksheets

This resource includes two of James Madison's most famous articles (written under the pseudonym "Publius") - Federalist Papers Number 10 and 51.

Two worksheets pair with the two texts, each featuring 11 analysis questions. This is an excellent higher-level, Common Core-aligned resource for analyzing their arguments on factions, checks & balances, and the separation of powers in America's government. It works very well in an American History class or Civics/American Government.

Editable Google Docs versions of both worksheets and a full answer key are also included for your convenience!
