Recent Scholarship on the Origins of the U.S. Constitution: A Guide for Teachers of American History.
This guide is designed to introduce high school teachers of American history to the most recent scholarship dealing with the origins of the U.S. Constitution. Surveys of recent scholarship on constitutional origins are organized by the following topics: historiography of the Convention, the Anti-federalists, The Federalist Papers, ratification of the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The guide also includes three sample lesson plans: the debate for ratification of the U.S. Constitution in the State of New York; Factions and parties in American politics; and Case study: the election of 1800. A number of bibliographies on a variety of topics about constitutional scholarship also are included. Finally, the guide contains two articles: "The E Pluribus Unum Simulation" (James B. M. Schick); and "What Every Student Should Know about the Bill of Rights" (Mark P. Petracca). (DB)
