We will be having a matching quiz next week on Monday and Tuesday. If you have not done the Preamble or your Chapter 5 workbook assignment you need to do them by the end of the quarter. I have logged a zero on PowerSchool for each assignment if you have not completed it.
Articles of Confederation- our country's first Constitution, some weaknesses were it had no president, it was hard to tax and hard to enforce laws.
The New Jersey Plan- favored equal representation for all states regardless of population.
The Virginia Plan- favored representation based on the population of the state
Federalists- wanted a strong national government, created the Constitution, wanted national government to be supreme
Anti-Federalists- wanted states to be supreme, wanted a weaker national government, worried about individual rights
Shays Rebellion- an event that caused people to want to change the Articles of Confederation
Constitutional Convention- meeting where the Articles of Confederation was replaced with the Constitution
