Chief Executives Compared: The Federalist Papers

How do the Constitutional roles of our chief executive compare to leadership roles under the Articles of Confederation and the British monarchy? Give your historians access to Alexander Hamilton's description of presidential roles in Federalist Paper 69, as groups jigsaw the source. The source is broken into 7 excerpts, one per group. Scholars compare and contrast the three systems on a chart. This is part of a larger unit, which is available through the Edsitement! site.
