Discussions Week 2 All Students Posts 29 Pages 

What were the main problems with the Articles of Confederation that led to the Constitutional Convention of 1787? How did the national government under the Constitution differ from the Articles of Confederation? How did the Constitution reorganize the national government?  Define the “market revolution”. What does this mean?

Class, what would you consider the “blind spots” for the writers of the constitution? Why were amendments made to the constitution later?  So how does slavery fit into the picture, with a statement like “all men are created equal” existing simultaneously with slavery?

What did the founding fathers think about slavery?  How can we understand the struggle for equality across various forms of oppression? Do you think that the central government should have more power than it currently has? Less power? Why?  If you were able to add any amendment to the Constitution, what would you add?…
