Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
Take out your simulation papers if you did not turn them in yesterday and write today's objectives in your own words. What are the activities you will be completing and how do you know whether or not you completed them? 

Whole Group (Voice Level 0) 10 minutes: 
Recap of the Constitution and what we've learned so far, introduction to Federalists and Antifederalists. 


Independent (Voice Level 0) 40 minutes: 

Task 1: Answer your TCI Guiding Questions in Google Classroom about the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Links to sentence starters and the reading are on your assignment. 

Task 2: BrainPop on the Constitution. As you watch, please take at least 7 bullet point notes and write a 5-7 sentence summary. You may do this digitally and share with me or on paper. 

Early Finishers: Watch this! 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes I met this objective because I completed all five tabs for the article, summarized everything including the dig deeper, and I scored 88% on the activity!" 

Collaborative (Voice Level .5 - 1) 40 minutes: 


We will be starting our Constitution DBQ, working on annotating and analyzing primary and secondary sources to answer the question, "How does the Constitution guard against tyranny?" We will be working on a Say-Mean-Matter chart and guiding questions for Documents A-C to help us with our CEREAL paragraphs. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes, I met the objective because I was able to annotate and I am confident I answered at least 8 of the 9 questions correctly." 

Exit Ticket (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
Why was it so important that the Founding Fathers create a government that prevented any one person or group of people from having too much power?

Homework: 
Doc A guiding questions and the Mean & Matter for Document A are both due on Monday/Tuesday. Do not do any of the other documents, we will be working on those together next week! Any period that has 100% return rate on their packets (that means no one loses it over the weekend!) gets two class points.
