U.S. Constitution: Thursday, September 5, 2013

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Today, after our review, the class first learned about the contribution of Montesquieu. We next turned our attention to the Articles of Confederation. I pointed out two major fears shared by most citizens and how these fears were addressed by the Articles.

For Friday you are to:

Read the Articles of Confederation (pages 1 - 8 in your reading booklet) and complete the worksheet.

Put the finishing touches on your Preamble.

Begin drawing a 1787 map of the United States. Feel free to use the Internet to look for sources.

Review your notes for tomorrow's quiz on the Magna Carta, the Glorious Revolution, and the English Bill of Rights.

 

Before our quiz tomorrow I will go around the room and check the progress of your work, including your notes.

 

See you in the morning

 

Mr. Massie
