Product Description

Historians disagree about why the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution. Historians adopting the revolutionary thesis assert that the Founding Fathers crafted a stronger government to stop the anarchy of the Articles of Confederation and strengthen the country. Historians that take the counter revolutionary thesis assert that the Constitution was a power grab for American elites. Who is right?

The lesson includes a metaphor to get the students excited, a worksheet to guide the students through the evidence, and an assignment.
