Young constitutional historians, I hope you now have a firm grasp of the events of the Constitutional convention, the process of ratification, and how the Constitution responded to many of the challenges that were present under the articles of Confederation. If you need any other support, you can utilize the resources on the review guide to review and strengthen your understanding of the foundation of our government and the key component in America story.
Our next major challenge in class is to dive into the over 200-year-old document and understand exactly what it means and how it sets the foundation for our government. You also see how the amendments to the Constitution both protect and limits our rights as we live as citizens in the United States.
But before that… We are going to have a little test on Monday during community time. In order to help you prepare for the first test and actually force you to get going with preparation, you have a review assignment – A Miracle in Philadelphia 2014 - that is due in your next class meeting. This review assignment is an INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT and will be evaluated and count as a grade. You should work on this assignment in order to begin the review process and identify what you know and what you’re struggling with. All of the information should be able to be found in your notes and the resources we have utilized in class. The assignment is due in your next class – however, if you do not have class till Monday, I will gladly accept the assignment on Friday and evaluate it and get it back to you before you leave for the weekend. Hopefully that would help you greatly in the review process.
