Unit 5 The Constitution Period

This unit will entail learning how our government was formed, the stages it went through, and the documents used to establish rule.  We will cover the concepts of nation-state, political system, individual rights, and compromise.  Students will be able to identify the difference between primary and secondary sources, analyze an original document, explain why checks and balances are so important in our government, defend the necessity of a bill of rights, and know important people of the day.
