PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

40 Multiple Choice Questions about the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to help teachers make even more use of Lesson 9 of We the People!

This worksheet is intended for use with Lesson 9 of We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution, an excellent high-school level textbook published by the Center for Civic Education.


MEETING TEACHERS' NEEDS

If you have used this text, you have probably had the same reaction to it as myself -- fantastic content, placing government concepts in their rich historical context where they are best understood.... but where’s the testing program?

Indeed, the major drawback I have found to the We the People textbook is a lack of strong ancillaries. That is why I have developed my own. This worksheet has been used by real high-school students and has kept them engaged and on-task while providing me, their teacher, with valuable information about how well each of them is mastering government concepts.


Using These We the People Worksheets in Class

All questions are presented in “Lesson order,” so that they can be used as a guided reading activity if desired.

I often use them as tests instead, however, requiring students to answer questions from memory alone. I have found that if students read the text with partners and discuss it along the way, they have excellent recall and can easily achieve scores of 80% and higher even without being able to look in the textbook to check their first impressions!


Teacher Convenience Means Fast Grading and Reusable Worksheets!

This We the People worksheet includes a convenient student answer sheet that is formatted exactly like the answer key. This makes for super-fast grading of multiple choice items! As an added bonus, if students write their answers on the answer sheet instead of on the worksheets themselves, the worksheets will remain blank and can be re-used from year to year without the need to make fresh copies!



LESSON 9 CONTENT:

"The Constitution of the United States of America was written at a convention held in Philadelphia in 1787. This lesson describes some of the important people who attended and the first steps they took in Philadelphia. The structure and rules they gave to their deliberations played a major role in the outcome by providing a framework for civil discourse, that is, the reasoned discussion of issues. The Virginia Plan, the first blueprint that the delegates considered, created the agenda for subsequent discussions.

"When you have completed this lesson, you should be able to describe the organizing phase of the Philadelphia Convention. You also should be able to explain the significance of rules and agendas for effective civil discussion. Finally, you should be able to evaluate, take, and defend positions on determining what interests should be represented in a constitutional convention and the advantages and disadvantages of secrecy in governmental deliberations."
