    Lesson 10 Lesson 10 Presentation Transcript

    • LESSON 10 By: Nick John Zach
    • Big Idea Compromise
    • Big Idea Facts
      • Took parts from the New Jersey and Virginia Plan
      • Gave proportional representation in the House of Representatives.
      • Gave equal representation in the Senate
    • Virginia Plan
      • Bicameral congress: House of Representatives and a Senate.
      • States with more people had larger representation.
      • Virginia Plan supported proportional representation.
    • New Jersey Plan
      • William Patterson Presented the New Jersey Plan
      • Unicameral Congress was proposed.
      • The New Jersey plan would affect trade, money, laws, and government.
      • Similar to the Articles of Confederation
    • Great Compromise
      • A mix of the two previous plans.
      • Equal representation in the Senate
      • Proportional representation in the House.
      • House developed bills, and veto power given to senate.
    • The Connecticut Compromise
      • The Constitutional Convention produced three distinct plans of government:
      • three shared the same basic distribution of powers but differed significantly in their structures.
      • This is because the members of the convention all agreed on where they ought to go, but disagreed on how to get there.
      • there was, in fact, only one real problem at the Convention: that of state representation.
    • The Solution
      • If neither plan would work, what is the solution? The delegation from Connecticut proposed a compromise , that is a deal where both sides would give up something.
      • The proponents of the Virginia Plan had to give up proportional representation in both houses, and the other side gave up the idea of a unicameral congress.
      • The result was a Bicameral Congress with Equal Representation in the Upper House , and Proportional Representation in the Lower House .
    • Why does this work?
      • It gives both sides a means of self-defense .
      • If the Larger states pass a measure in the lower house that is prejudicial to the interests of the small states,then the small states can combine and defeat it in the Senate.
      • If the Smaller states pass legislation prejudicial to the interests of the larger ones in the Senate,then the larger states can defeat it in the House.
      • In order for a bill to become law, it must satisfy the interests of both large and small states.
    • Three-fifths Compromise
      • South wanted equal representation
      • North didn’t want to count slaves
      • Compromise was three of fives slaves counted.
    • Cricital Thinking Activity
      • Objective: Work together to form a plan.
      • Steps:
      • Get into group of five.
      • Select a spokesperson.
      • Allow time for revisions.
      • Have entire class agree on one plan.
      • 5. Compare all plans to each other.
