Attention teachers who are looking to have an American history class without a textbook! In “Note-Taking Guide for Ratifying the Constitution” students will investigate the political manoeuvres behind the ratification of the Constitution; the differences between Federalists and Anti-federalists; the ratification process; the process in Virginia, New York, and the Federalist Papers; and the Antifederalists’s victory in defeat. All of this is done through an authoritative website, ushistory.org. Students are required to take jot notes on the historically significant events, individuals, and issues that have contributed to the shaping of this period in American history. This study guide naturally includes the web address upon which it has been based. Overall, this note-taking exercise has served as an excellent companion for students at both the grade school and high school levels and has acted as a wonderful tool in the writing of quizzes, tests, essays, reports, and exams.
