Storyboard Text

  • I'm George Washington, and I'm here in Philadelphia for the constitutional constitution
  • I am the president of the convention because I was elected so by my fellow colleagues.
  • its really too bad that it is so hot out here, and the mosquitoes are spreading disease.
  • Well, i'm off to the convention.
  • The virginia plan is far superior. Two houses with votes based on population is the only option.
  • Outrageous! If we follow through with the Virginia plan, then the small states will have no say!
  • The New Jersey plan is the way to go! If each state has one vote, then the smaller states will have a voice in our government!
  • Absolutely not! It does not make sense for a state with 400,000 people to have equal say with a state with 70,000 people!
  • fine.
  • I'm Roger Sherman, and I have come up with a compromise. Our legislative branch will have two branches.
  • We'll have a House of Representatives with one vote based on population, and a senate where each state has two representatives.
  • ok.
  • legislative branch /2 houses\ / (groups) \ [pop]-------[pop]
  • Of course slaves should count towards the population. Their people, too!
  • That's good.
  • should slaves count in the population?
  • I'm James Madison, and I think we should count slaves as 3/5 as a person
  • If we have too.
  • No they shouldn't! If slaves can't vote, why should they be part of the population? You Southern states just want power!
  • New Jersey plan legislative branch [every state]= one house
  • The Great Compromise
  • The 3/5 comromise
