The influence of rome and greece on the united states

Those we term as our Founding Fathers were faced with a government that just wasn’t working following independence from Great Britain. The Articles of the Confederation had to be revised or a new government created all together. The United Sates Constitutional Convention which took place from May 14 to September 17, 1787 was the ‘bridge’ to get the Founders over ‘troubled water’.

The result of the Convention was the United States Constitution. The government that emerged in 1787 has proven to be among the greatest that has been fostered.

Was the United States Government an experiment engineered by our Founding Fathers or a proven product of the Classical minds?

In this lesson, students will explore the extent of the influence of Rome and the Classical thinkers on the founding Fathers. The primary and secondary source documents will guide them in this question. Students will utilize the inquiry approach as they analyze the documents, develop a thesis and draw conclusions based on the evidence.
