We are working with Lauren’s class to hold our own mock Constitutional Convention on Friday. Included are some previously underrepresented participants – women, Native Americans, Enslaved African Americans, Free African Americans and white workers and indentured servants. We will examine two issues: slavery and suffrage. Students are working in groups to understand the varying perspectives and will each write a short persuasive speech to deliver on Friday. Students are welcome to dress in costume.
Hope to see you there and watch the votes come in.
