A self directed web search for students to explore the main players and ideas associated with the debate over the ratification of the Constitution. Can be expanded easily if you'd prefer to include more context. Students will need to be introduced to different types of graphic organizers before started. In addition, a class discussion about reputable web sites will be in order. Common Core aligned and a nice exercise. I use this exercise to frontload information before having the students read the important Federalist papers and fill out my reading guide (available on my site separately).
