The constitution video lesson


The video teaches students how the market revolution transformed the economy and people's lives in the 1800s. It teaches students how the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and Shays' Rebellion led to the Constitutional Convention where framers reforged the country. It teaches the Virginia Plan, Great Compromise, 3/5 Compromise and how slavery was protected by the Constitution despite major opposition to slavery, and how Federalists and Anti-Federalists duked it out in the fight to ratify the Constitution.

***The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
