Reading and Literature Part II

Lesson 2,

Assignment 2:

Recall the historical figures that you learned about in lesson 2.  These figures include: Fredrick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and other political.  Which person do you think is the most important or influential figure?  Complete the following:

Name the person you think was the most important or influential

Give 3 reasons why you find this person to be important or influential.

Reason 1

Reason 2

Reason 3

Find one quotation from the reading material to illustrate at least one of your reasons.  Be sure to say where you found your quote.

Here is an example:

James Madison

James Madison was influential for the following reasons:

He helped make important changes to the constitution.

He thought that having a strong central government was important for making the United States a strong country.

He understood that compromise was important.

“With the states retaining considerable power, the central government, he believed, had insufficient power to regulate commerce.”  I found this quote in “A More Perfect Union: The Creation of the U.S. Constitution” in lesson 2.4.
