"We the People"

This "We the People" lesson plan also includes:

To gain an appreciation for the difficulty the framers of the Constitution faced when crafting this historic document, class members are asked to predict five words that would occur frequently in the Constitution of the United States. Working as pairs, groups of four, then groups of eight, teams develop such a list. The whole class then discusses the process they went through and the difficulty they had reaching consensus. Next, the focus turns to a word-processed document of the Constitution, and using the replace tool, learners record their findings on a spreadsheet and create a double bar graph to compare their predictions with the actual results. Additional activities for studying the strengths and weaknesses of a constitutional government, as well as assessment options for each activity, are included in the packet.
