Storyboard Text

  • The south wants slaves to be counted as population to determine representation in Congress. They don't think slaves should be counted as population to determine tax.
  • Then why should they not be counted to determine tax?
  • Why should slaves be left out on determining representation in Congress?
  • No one ever seems to along...
  • The north does not want slaves to be counted as part of the population to determine representation in Congress but does want them to be counted as part of the population to determine taxes.
  • Slaves should be counted to determine tax.
  • I am confused...
  • The 3/5 Compromise
  • That works for me!
  • The 3/5th Compromise counts 3/5ths of the slave population for representation in Congress and to determine the tax.
  • Great!
  • The Virginia Plan
  • This plan supported a two house legislature, wanted the representation in Congress to be based on population, and it was supported by larger states.
  • The government should be bicameral.
  • That does not make sense...
  • This plan supported a one house legislature and wanted equal representation in Congress. This plan was supported by smaller states. These states feared that their power would be lost in the federal government.
  • Why can't anyone agree???
  • The government should definitely be unicameral.
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • The compromise was that there would be a two house legislature (bicameral). The Senate would have equal representation and the House of Representatives, the lower house of Congress, would be proportional to the population of states.
  • Okay!
  • This plan will work for me!
  • The Great Compromise
