The issues involving the Constitution that Daniel Shays helped inspire made those leading elites in power from the in the 13 States work towards a constitution. Make sure you had looked at the United States Constitution, and the Federalist papers, and the 3/5 Compromise. It is still taking years to create rights for Americian's Rights from these historical events in class.
The first Presidency will be of George Washington which has historical value in understanding today's politics. We have talked in our classes about connection to the Election 2016. The ways Congress and the Executive work together is something you have seen too, and will be watching intently for days to come. Many of you are wondering what is going to happen next, so use history as a guide to interpret what President Trump might do in the future.
The political parties begin when Jefferson and Hamilton argue as members of Washington's Cabinet on the ideas about the power of the new government under the United States Constitution. This battle was even more contentious than the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, that brought us the Bill of Rights. However, the 3/5 compromise will be the massive problem that Benjamin Franklin warned us about and became the protection of slavery until emancipation, and maybe the 13th Amendment. Slavery and the results of this unique American system based on a social construction of race, will be one that we even saw as a topic of current political discussions and a cornerstone of this course.

Everyone of us is living history. We all have a story to tell and the ancestors that came before us that carved a way for us to become a new member of civilization. We also are learning that we are all related genetically and culturally in the family of humanity. All people’s past becomes part of all of us, and will always be completely intertwined with the entire world community.
From time to time we will have some ideas from words that give us wisdom about our world. Writers are some of the most insightful people that understand our modern and ancient world quite well. Feel free to read, think, comment on these ideas. It seems that some of the students would like to debate issues of government, economics, and history. This can be a forum for this idea. Also if you would like to do formal debates in class we need to prepare debate rule and procedures. This can be a start and then we can decide if we will proceed to bring the debates in class on topics we study. Please follow our classroom rules if you decided to write on the blog. Make sure that you ask questions, and be helpful, and mature in all your interactions. This can be a helpful way for you to share what you have learned and what you want to learn, or just share ideas. Also just submit an idea through an email, or web contact, and we can maybe add the idea. Send a picture with the suggestion for the classes. Thank you.
Photos above left to right: The Solon, by Raphael was a depiction of the place where ideas were discussed and debated. Greek democracy in the public sphere. Here is the philosopher Seneca talking to Nero-Claudius Cesar Drusus Germanicus [Roman Emperor 54-68 BCE]- about society,law, politics, ethics and morality. Anthem for the doomed!
Students can also decide to add a topic that can be approved and monitored by Mr.C. Please be responsible and follow the social contract. You can share ideas and questions on your now topics about our class. Friends can help each other study with their devices. Please only students, but fell free to share the forum communications with your family. This can be a source for all students.
