Product Description
This DBQ provides several documents, including numerous primary sources (Federalist Papers, Brutus), and relevant background information on the battle between federalists and antifederalists to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Students should work with a partner or in small groups to work through the documents and answer corresponding questions.

At the end, students will organize their information into a graphic organizer and then answer the essential question: If you were a US citizen in 1787, and did not know how the federal government would develop as it has today, would you have voted to ratify the Constitution (without a Bill of Rights)? Why or why not? Please write 1-2 paragraphs to support your response.
