What educators are saying

My students liked reading the passages. They thought it was good to read the actual Federalist pages rather than just hear about them. It was a good assignment.
Thank you so much for a resource that helped supplement my own child's learning when they were struggling with a concept.


This resource on Federalist Papers 10 and 51 includes two of James Madison's most famous articles (written under the pseudonym "Publius") along with analysis worksheets for students to compete.

The 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!

Thank you so much for checking it out!
