LEARNING EXPERIENCE September 15/16 – Ratification

Once the Constitutional Convention concluded, there was still a huge hurdle for the document to become a reality – Ratification, or the process of approving the Constitution. As you will find out, it will take 9 out of 13 states to approve the Constitution before it becomes the law of the land, and that won’t be an easy task.

In our next class, you will represent a Federalist (supporter) or Antifederalist (opponent)  of the Constitution.  How do you prepare? Carefully read your handout on “The Ratification Conflict” and then spend 20 minutes (SET A TIMER) looking at the various Ratification Conflict links below.  You should be searching for arguments for your side and filling in that column in your notes   Of course, you can start to fill in the other side if you want.

And if you REALLY REALLY REALLY want to dig in to Ratification …


How will you show your understanding of the creation of the Constitution?  Any way you want … as long as you hit the targets!
