02.03​ ​The​ ​Anti-Federalists:​ ​Assessment


Prominent​ ​Americans​ ​wrote​ ​essays​ ​and​ ​gave​ ​speeches​ ​to​ ​support​ ​their​ ​positions.​ ​You​ ​will now​ ​follow​ ​their​ ​example​ ​by​ ​writing​ ​and​ ​editing​ ​your​ ​own​ ​persuasive​ ​argument​ ​either​ ​for​ ​or against​ ​ratifying​ ​the​ ​Constitution.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​find​ ​it​ ​helpful​ ​to​ ​complete​ ​this​ ​​Activity​ ​on​ ​Argument Writing​​ ​before​ ​you​ ​begin.


1. Choose​ ​whether​ ​to​ ​argue​ ​as​ ​a​ ​Federalist​ ​or​ ​as​ ​an​ ​Anti-Federalist.​ ​Review​ ​the​ ​lesson​ ​to make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​understand​ ​their​ ​main​ ​points.

2. Using​ ​quotes​ ​from​ ​the​ ​​Federalist​ ​and​ ​Anti-Federalist​ ​Papers​,​ ​write​ ​an​ ​opinion​ ​article​ ​for​ ​a newspaper,​ ​or​ ​create​ ​a​ ​speech​ ​podcast​ ​to​ ​convince​ ​people​ ​in​ ​your​ ​state​ ​to​ ​agree​ ​with your​ ​position.​ ​Include​ ​the​ ​following​ ​in​ ​your​ ​speech​ ​or​ ​article:

○ ©​ ​2012​ ​Polka​ ​Dot/Thinkstock ○ introductory​ ​paragraph​ ​that​ ​clearly​ ​states​ ​your​ ​position​ ​as​ ​a​ ​Federalist​ ​or

Anti-Federalist ○ at​ ​least​ ​two​ ​paragraphs​ ​describing​ ​differences​ ​between​ ​the​ ​Federalist​ ​and

Anti-Federalist​ ​points​ ​of​ ​view.​ ​Use​ ​at​ ​least​ ​two​ ​quotes​ ​from​ ​each​ ​of​ ​the Federalist​ ​Papers​​ ​and​ ​​Anti-Federalist​ ​Papers​.

○ ○ If​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​more​ ​of​ ​the​ ​​Federalist​ ​Papers​​ ​and​ ​​Anti-Federalist

Papers​​ ​to​ ​find​ ​your​ ​own​ ​quotes,​ ​these​ ​sites​ ​will​ ​be​ ​helpful. ○ ○ Federalist​ ​Papers

■ American​ ​Studies​​ ​at​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ ​Virginia ■ The​ ​Avalon​ ​Project​​ ​at​ ​Yale​ ​Law​ ​School ■ The​ ​Law​ ​Center​​ ​at​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ ​Oklahoma

For​ ​example,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​have​ ​chosen​ ​to​ ​argue​ ​as​ ​a​ ​Federalist,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​explain​ ​why you​ ​disagree​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Anti-Federalist​ ​position,​ ​using​ ​quotes​ ​from​ ​the documents​ ​to​ ​support​ ​your​ ​argument.

○ strong​ ​concluding​ ​paragraph​ ​that​ ​summarizes​ ​your​ ​argument​ ​and​ ​encourage others​ ​to​ ​support​ ​you



3. Your​ ​argument​ ​should​ ​be​ ​created​ ​in​ ​a​ ​formal​ ​style.​ ​One​ ​important​ ​element​ ​of​ ​formal writing​ ​is​ ​using​ ​third​ ​person​ ​point-of-view.​ ​The​ ​sentence​ ​”I​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​the​ ​Federalist’s structure​ ​of​ ​government”​ ​is​ ​written​ ​from​ ​first​ ​person​ ​point-of-view​ ​because​ ​it​ ​uses​ ​the pronoun​ ​”I.”​ ​The​ ​sentence​ ​”The​ ​Federalist’s​ ​structure​ ​of​ ​government”​ ​is​ ​written​ ​from​ ​third person​ ​point-of-view.​ ​In​ ​formal​ ​writing,​ ​use​ ​third​ ​person​ ​point-of-view.​ ​While​ ​you​ ​won’t really​ ​present​ ​your​ ​work​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Second​ ​Continental​ ​Congress,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​prepare​ ​your argument​ ​as​ ​if​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​sharing​ ​it​ ​with​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​very​ ​important​ ​members​ ​of​ ​Congress.

4. Edit​ ​your​ ​work​ ​before​ ​submitting.​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​article​ ​or​ ​speech​ ​has​ ​an​ ​introduction,​ ​a separate​ ​paragraph​ ​for​ ​each​ ​point​ ​you​ ​make,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​conclusion.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​choose​ ​to make​ ​a​ ​podcast,​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​are​ ​in​ ​character​ ​when​ ​you​ ​perform​ ​your​ ​speech.

5. 6. There​ ​are​ ​many​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​tools​ ​available​ ​for​ ​creating​ ​and​ ​submitting​ ​your​ ​work

in​ ​the​ ​online​ ​environment.​ ​For​ ​more​ ​information​ ​on​ ​tools​ ​your​ ​school​ ​uses,​ ​contact your​ ​instructor​ ​or​ ​visit​ ​the​ ​Web​ ​2.0​ ​tools​ ​area.
