Articles of Confederation (The Nation's First Constitution) in Google Classroom

Articles of Confederation (The Nation's First Constitution)

The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first constitution of the United States, on November 15, 1777. However, ratification of the Articles of Confederation by all thirteen states did not occur until March 1, 1781. The Articles created a loose confederation of sovereign states and a weak central government, leaving most of the power with the state governments. The need for a stronger Federal government soon became apparent and eventually led to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The present United States Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation on March 4, 1789.
You will be learning more in depth about the Articles, its' weaknesses and how it led to a Constitutional Convention. You will work in breakout groups and presenting your own Articles.
Lastly, we will overview our learning by watching a Brain Pop video (Login in: svhsd, Password: sv) and seeing how this transitions into inviting state delegates to a Constitutional Convention.

Then each of you will take a roll in helping to complete the chart. For example: One person will be in charge of researching and completing information on the New England Colonies, One person will be in charge of the Middle Colonies and One person will be in charge of the Southern Colonies. Pick one person to be the spokes person who will be in charge of making the copy of the chart, sharing out with the group and then presenting out to the class by sharing your screen and answering teacher questions. That person will also help find information as needed in the time that is allowed in your group to finish the chart.

Keep in mind due dates for assignments as you will be held accountable and turning in assignments late can affect your grade as you will not receive full credit. If you are having a situation that is preventing you from turning in an assignment on time, contact me as soon as you can so we can work on a solution together to keep you on task and up to date. The following assignment will be done during our class session but you will see the due date for this assignment is extended to Friday. Expect to have at least one graded assignment per class meeting. Have fun with this assignment and I am online during your work time to answer questions and help where I can.
