The Largest PR Campaign of its Time

Reading eighteenth century texts can be challenging. Our goal with this project is to create a series of resources that could be helpful to high school and college students struggling to make sense of the founding moment. We will be using this blog to construct "thick annotations" of several of the Federalist Papers. At the same time, you will develop your research, writing, and communication skills.

What is this Page?

Our goal is to create interactive, high quality analyses of primary source texts that can help high school and college teachers and students understand the process by which the Constitution was ratified, the ideas that were debated, and the controversies that emerged. We will help them understand the intellectual, social, and economic world of the United States in 1787. We will work independently and collaboratively to do so.
