In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

The document, originally drafted by Thomas Jefferson with the help of Ben Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman, ad Robert Livingston, declared that the thirteen American colonies were now independent and free of the tyranny of the British Empire. On July 4th, with the final wording in place, it was ready for the whole world to read; though, it would be about another month before congress would actually sign it, contrary to popular belief.

On March 1, 1781, the Articles of Confederation came into effect after Maryland became the thirteenth and final state to ratify them. As the first constitution for the new nation, The Articles established a national legislature but assigned it relatively little power. The individual colonies retained much of their sovereignty, and it soon became clear that such a weak federal government was ineffective. By 1787 the framers had begun writing a new constitution, the one that created the federal government Americans have today. James M. Lindsay, CFR's senior vice president and director of studies, says that this episode in U.S. history points to the difficulty of creating a workable constitution. "It is easy to write a constitution," he says, but "hard to write a constitution that works." This lesson, he argues, should be kept in mind as countries like Egypt, Tunisia, Myanmar, and South Sudan "struggle to create effective and legitimate systems of government."

In the years following the end of the American Revolution, the Continental Congress was on the brink of collapse due to the Articles of Confederation and its refusal to consider fundamental reform to the document. In professor George William Van Cleve’s book, We Have Not a Government, we encounter a sharply divided America and a Congress that grudgingly agreed to support the 1787 Constitutional Convention to replace the Articles with a more flexible and powerful government. A book signing will follow the program. Live Captioning: https://www.streamtext.net/player?event=NATA17Oct23

In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the compromises met in ratifying the U.S. Constitution. The United State’s didn’t always have its current system of government. Actually, this is it’s second attempt. Craig will delve into the failures (and few successes) of the Articles of Confederation, tell you how delegates settled on a two-house system of representation, discuss the issues of slavery and population that have been imbedded into our constitution, and fire up the clone machine to discuss how federalists and anti-federalist opposition provided the U.S. a Bill of Rights. And who knows, maybe all this talk of compromise will even inspire Craig and eagle to find some middle ground.

PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This video explores the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation, the reasons it was deliberately weak, the powers under the confederation that were granted as well as the powers that were missing. The weaknesses are discussed with the effects they had on the ability to wage war against the British and solve the problems of the new country. While this video was designed for students taking the Florida End-of-Course exam, it will help any Civics or U.S. Government students. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class. ***For noncommercial, educational, and archival purposes under Law of Fair Use as provided in section 107 of the US copyright law.

We wrote this song based on the Articles of Confederation. We explain what power it had, the problems it underwent, effects and causes. Articles of Confederation Lyrics: By: Tiffany Leung and Nicaella Chan Under the Articles of Confederation The congress was weak and so was the Nation Too little power led to frustration Only allowed to Declare war Make treaties Establish postal service Manage Indian affairs Maintain an army and navy Regulate weights and measures Coin and borrow money The rest of the power was left to the states Despite its limitations The Congress was not completely flawed Pass two very important laws The Land Ordinance of 1785 Allowed the Northwest Territory to divide Into townships 6 squares mile wide 36 sections inside The 16th section for education The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 Abolished slavery In the Northwest Territory Divided land not more than five Not less than three, politically The Northwest Ordinance was important Made new western lands as equal states Instead of subordinate colonies Which was very rare in history! BUT SOMETHING WAS WRONG SOMETHING WAS WRONG! PROBLEM ONE Congress had no power to raise taxes It had no power to regulate commerce States had all the power to tax tax tax And regulate trades trades trades -- OH NO! Without taxing power the Government was broke States wouldn't pay they thought it was a joke PROBLEM TWO To pay it's 40,000,000 dollar war debt Continental Congress issued paper money But the value was inflated It was underrated 40 dollar to one silver Dollar Creditors avoided debtors Who tried to pay with worthless money Hostility grew between these two groups PROBLEM THREE Each state exercised its sovereignty Tariff Wars! - What a catastrophe Charged rivals with tariffs An extra dollar for neighboring states PROBLEM FOUR It was like Europe nations here The Sovereign states would fight all year Jealousy and Quarreling among the states Mighty warfare broke out all day! PROBLEM FIVE Each state had different trade regulations Maddening the situation with foreign relations It was undeniable The Confederation wasn't reliable It had no power to back its agreements PROBLEM SIX No respect England and Spain waited gleefully They did not believe that a self-government Would work successfully PROBLEM SEVEN In Massachusetts Daniel shay led the way for Debt-ridden farmers struck by inflation Who couldn't pay for their plantations Refusing to go to debtor's prison Or Losing their farm to creditors A group of farmers Took up arms and went against the courts! Shay's Rebellion of 1787 worried leaders like George Washington It called for a new constitution! 1781-1788 was the ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION it failed it failed! Bt we needed some form of government. A stepping-stone to the U.S constitution!
