Constitution Unit – Week One

As we’ve begun the Constitution Unit, we also start weekly Quizzes to serve as checkpoints. If students are having problems with the amount of new (and sometimes “heavy”) material, these quizzes will supplement the Study Guide and methods of teaching to hopefully make the Constitution easier to understand.

This week, we’ve discussed the first 4 goals on the Study Guide, and we’ll have a quiz Monday (April 7th) covering those goals. Be sure to understand:

1. What influenced the Constitution (Romans, Brits, Early Americans, Enlightenment)
2. Why we need government (state of nature, consent, social contract)
3. Goals of the Preamble
4. Articles of the Constitution
5. Principles of the Constitution

This quiz is light… it’s only 10 questions or so. Review your notes and ask me if you have questions.
