We will have a quiz on Moday the 12th and our last test of the quarter on the 21st, a Wednesday. A study guide and video lesson for the test will be available this weekend. For the quiz you need to know:
What the Articles of Confederation were (first written Constitution) and what its weaknesses were (no president, no power tax, no central government). After Shays' Rebellion, when farmers and soldiers rioted, country knew it was time for a change.
NJ and Virginia Plans (Virgina Plan favored large states, based voting on state population (Great Compromise based House of Representatives on this model) and NJ Plan favored each state getting same amount of votes (Great Compromise based Senate on this model).
Constitutional Convention (What is ratification)
Debate between Federalists and Anti-Federalists (Federalists supported Const. and wanted a strong central or national government) Anti-Federalists worried that states would lose power and peoples' rights would not be protected, they demanded a Bill of Rights be added before ratification.
