|Federalists vs. Antifederalists Project
In this group project you will learn about the different views on the completed Constitution as held by the Federalists and the Antifederalists.
You must describe in sufficient detail at least four beliefs/positions of each side: four for the Federalists, four for the Antifederalists. The beliefs/positions can be general, or specific. In many cases, the belief/position relates to both sides and each side has a different viewpoint; those are good because they show point-counterpoint on the topics. However, choosing a belief/position that relates to only one side works, too.
You must create a product that will teach the beliefs of each side. The product may take any of the following formats:
--A short comic book explaining the differing views of the two sides; include drawn illustrations, dialogue, etc., just like a regular comic book
--A flip chart describing the viewpoints of both sides
--a cube-style product that describes the arguments for both sides
--A brochure that describes each side’s views. One brochure per side, for a total of two brochures
--Create/record a 30-second TV-style commercial for each side. This could be a campaign-style ad where you criticize one side and promote the other. One commercial per side for a total of two commercials. Everyone in the group should appear in the commercials.
--Posters: One poster for each side, total of two posters. Must include artwork, graphics, pictures, or other similar things that help illustrate the text.
--Trading cards, like baseball or football player cards. On a card would be the picture of a Framer with the designation Federalist or Antifederalist. Underneath would be his “stats,” which should include the state he represents, his occupation, and one belief/position of whichever side he represents. The card should be on unlined 3x5 index cards; picture and name on front with Federalist or Antifederalist; belief/position explained on the back. Example:
Federalists believed that …
--If you have an idea for a different type of product, talk it over with Mr. Whitfield to see if it will be OK before proceeding
