This is a perfect way to organize the specific information that students need to know about our Founding Fathers and the Constitutional Convention! This chart is designed for a Virginia and United States History course, so it matches our Standards of Learning (SOL) essential knowledge. But it can be easily modified for any classroom or Common Core Curriculum. This could be used for struggling students to graphically organize their notes or as a formative group project to check to understanding.
This .zip file includes two word documents: a blank student copy of the chart and a teacher's answer key. The worksheet focuses on George Washington, James Madison, George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton. It also includes a place for students to describe the beliefs and arguments for Federalists and Antifederalists, and to describe the significance of the Bill of Rights to those arguments.
