Storyboard Text

  • The New Jersey Plan!
  • We have the Virginia Plan and the New Jersey Plan. But, the question is, which do we pick?
  • The Virginia Plan!
  • Obviously, we should use the Virginia Plan! A two-house legistaure with representation that's proportional to every state creates accurate voting rates and it will improve how the states are involved in the government.
  • Yeah, well, what would you expect someone from those states to say?
  • I guess you're right. Hey! This next guy is from a smaller state, I wonder what he'll say?
  • Isn't that guy from Virginia, one of the largest states? He is!
  • No way! The New Jersey Plan is much better and it provides an equal opportunity for all states to participate in government. A one-house legislature with the same number of representatives from each state is much simpler and more effective than the Virginia Plan!
  • I have an idea! Why don't we use representation methods from both and create a new form a government! I call it the "Great Compromise"!
  • Where did this guy come from?
  • Huh. That's a pretty good idea.
  • All those in favor of this "Great Compromise"? Brilliant!
