Lessons on the Federalist Papers: Supplements to High School Courses in American History, Government and Civics.
Patrick, John J.; Keller, Clair W.
Studying ideas from the Federalist papers provides high school students with an opportunity to examine the first principles of U.S. civic culture. By increasing their knowledge and appreciation of the basic ideas in the Federalist papers, students develop civic literacy that is likely to enhance their participation in a free society. This volume contains teaching plans for ten lessons: (1) "Federalists versus Antifederalists"; (2) "What Is The Federalist?"; (3) "Limited Government and the Rule of Law in The Federalist, Numbers 23, 51, 53, 70"; (4) "Federalism and Republicanism in The Federalist, Numbers 9 and 39"; (5) "Separation of Powers with Checks and Balances in The Federalist, Numbers 47, 48, 51"; (6) "Judicial Review in The Federalist, Numbers 78, 80, 81"; (7) "National Security with Liberty in The Federalist, Numbers 4, 23, 41"; (8) "Popular Sovereignty and Free Government in The Federalist, Numbers 10, 39, 51"; (9) "Hamilton, Madison, and the Bill of Rights"; and (10) "Chronology of Main Events Associated with the Origin and Writing of The Federalist." The content and purposes of the lessons, their characteristics, and how to select and use them are thoroughly explained in the notes to teachers. Selected papers from The Federalist are included in the appendix. (KWL)
