Great Compromise

Storyboard Text

  • Hey, I've got it! Why don't we do something like this?
  • Yes but we have to be secretive, if we're not, the people may be upset and riot! And we have to speak our minds freely
  • We need a different government
  • but what do we do?
  • Favored by the larger states, and proposed by James Madison, the representation is based upon the population of a state. The argument is that the more people there are in a state, the more votes that state should get.
  • In favor by the smaller states, proposed by W. Paterson, the representation is for the amount of votes to be equal for each state. The argument being issued here is everyone should get the same amount of votes, no matter how large a population is.
  • The representatives were discussing about the government in secret discussing about the issue of how many votes each state gets
  • The Great Compromise, proposed by Roger Shermon. The bicameral legislature to be two houses in Congress. The lower house, the House of Representatives, is based on state population, it states that the more people there are, the more votes that state gets. The upper house, Senate each state should get an equal number of votes.
  • The Virginia Plan was the more people a population has, the more votes they should get.
  • Yay!
  • We did it!
  • The New Jersey Plans was the everyone should get the same amount of votes, no matter how many people the population has.
