"By the 1850’s the Constitution, originally framed as an instrument of national unity, had become a source of sectional discord and tension and ultimately contributed to the failure of the union it had created." Using the documents and your knowledge of the period 1850-1861, assess the validity of this statement.


Step 1: As your classmates present their view of Janus America 1850, write down key words and important facts from the presentation.


Step 2: Combine the key words and important facts to write a summarizing statement of 45 – 50 words (no more—no less), that answers the essay question.

If you are stuck, you may use the following formatting to get your brain in gear.
Today’s presentation . One key idea was . This is important because . Another key idea . This matters because . In sum, today’s lesson .

Step 3: Swap papers and have a classmate read and verify & /or edit your summary.
Step 4: Re-write your summary, editing it down to precisely 20 words.

Step5: Re-write your 20-word summary so it is legible.
