I am a junior in high school taking us history.
History is and never was my best subject. Unfortunately, in this group project, I was paired up with two people who could care less about what is going on in class, so I guess, I have to save the day. WHY MEEE?! Don't you hate when this happens to you?!
anyways, the project is this:
Make a television commercial to persuade citizens to either support the Federalists in ratifying the Constitution or support the Anti-Federalists in stopping the ratification.
ah, I'm totally freaking out, how should my group do this? I definately want to narrate and let the other two act, but what should be said?
*you can read the information below if you wish, it's just my backgroud information... it doesn't have to be used.
So far I have this information found from the text book:
George Washington, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton were important Federalist. The reasons they support were b/c the Federalists insisted that the division of the powers and the system of checks and balances would protect Americans from the tyranny of centralized authority.
Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, and Richard Henry Lee were Anti-Ferderalists. They support b/c they have fear the government would serve the interest of the privileged minority and ignore the rights of the majority...
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED... my group is NOT HELPING AT ALL!
