In this Federalist and Anti-Federalist lesson, students examine primary source documents to understand the Federalist and Anti-Federalist views on the new Constitution. Students will examine two major issues that these two sides debated when states were dealing with whether or not to ratify the new plan of government. Students will also complete a graphic organizer that forces students to actively delve into the material.
Students will analyze these two questions:
1.) How did Federalists and Anti Federalists differ on their view of Congressional Representation?
2.) What were the Federalist and Anti Federalist views on State and Federal government power?
Very engaging and student centered lesson that tackles two of the major issues in the ratification process! Also, a perfect Common Core compliment!
