Reflecting on Shays’ Rebellion What did you learn about the nature of economics during yesterday’s role play? Do you think a non-violent solution was possible to avert Shays’ Rebellion? Explain. If so, explain how violence could be avoided. Write a one paragraph summary of the context leading up to the Constitutional Convention. In writing your paragraph think about each of the roles yesterday and address the following questions: - What was going on at the time? - How is that time similar or different to our own? - What would it have been like to live in the time leading up the Constitution?
Shays’ Attack on the Federal Springfield Arsenal Whisper read “Shays’ Attack on the Federal Springfield Arsenal” with an elbow partner. Summarize what you have read after each paragraph. Write an OPVL paragraph about the primary source afterwards. Imagine you are answering the question: Was Daniel Shays’ primarily responsible for the rebellion? Then, decide on what is the most important point of the reading and be ready to share.
Timeline Activity Make a timeline from the years 1780 to 1791. Have a discussion with your partner about where each of the events should be placed. Be ready to share.
