In this session, students will explore the battle over the ratification of the Constitution—beginning with Convention delegates like George Mason who refused to sign the Constitution and continuing through the debates between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. The class will also examine great works like The Federalist Papers (#10 and #51) and Brutus #1. Students will explore why this time in America was called a “grand national discussion.”
*Session is for high school, college level students, teachers and learners of all ages. Teachers, please share Zoom information with students!
