Grade level/band: 11–12
- Students write a 3-page paper analyzing the constitutional issues that divided Jefferson, Hamilton, and their followers during the Washington administration. Then they examine their personal and political philosophy and determine if they would be “Jeffersonians” or “Hamiltonians” in today’s political climate. The goal is to determine if students consider themselves to be strict or broad constructionists when considering constitutional issues.
