I created this graphic organizer and the corresponding PowerPoint presentation to use in my 8th grade US History class for STAAR review. It explains some of the problems our Founding Fathers faced after the American Revolution when setting up our new government. Issues include national security (Whiskey Rebellion, XYZ Affair), setting up the court system (Marbury v. Madison, Federal Judiciary Act), our gov'ts authority (States' rights, Alien and Sedition Acts, Jefferson's LA Purchase) and creating a stable economic system (establishment of National Bank, settling debt from American Revolution).
This package includes:
-Blank "Problems with the New Republic" graphic organizer
-PowerPoint file, complete with animations/transitions
-Completed "Problems with the New Republic" graphic organizer
