Storyboard Text

  • Since some states have smaller populations, we should have equal representation so the larger states do not have all the power.
  • No Thank You
  • New Jersey's suggestion
  • Representation should be proportional, the largest state deserves more representatives in congress than the smallest state.
  • I don't think so...
  • Virginia's Suggestion
  • What if we have two houses? The Senate will have equal representation and the House of Representatives will have proportional representation.
  • Alright we will compromise
  • Roger Sherman's solution
  • Slaves should not be counted when deciding on the number of representatives each state gets, if they were, the south would have all the power.
  • This sounds absurd!
  • The Northern State's suggestion
  • We have so many slaves in the south, we must count them when deciding on representation in congress.
  • That's not fair...
  • The Southern State's suggestion
  • Let's just count a portion of the slaves
  • As long as it's a large portion...
  • How about three fifths of the population of slaves? That portion will be counted when deciding on representation in congress.
  • The Solution
