Summarize Plans from the Constitutional Convention (3 Plans).

I’m studying for my Political Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?


This assignment will help you review the 3 major plans proposed at the Constitutional Convention and also help you get used to using external Political Science resources available at the PCC Shatford Library. Please follow the directions, as they will walk you through this assignment step by step.

In this assignment you will summarize the major plans that impacted the creation of the Constitution:

  • The Virginia Plan
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • Connecticut/Great Compromise


Step 1: Research Your Plan

Use the resources in the POLSC 1: Introduction to American Government Library GuideLinks to an external site. to find 2 external sources about your plan. The Article Databases tab in this resource will be particularly helpful if you are off campus. For this assignment, you may find the Gale Virtual Reference Library and the US History in Context databases useful.

Step 2: Summarize Each Plan

In your own words, create a 150 word summary of each plan (450 words total). Here are some questions to guide you. Please do not simply answer the questions, but rather use them to create a well-organized summary of your information.

  1. Who wrote the plan?
  2. Who benefited from the plan?
  3. What specific powers will the congress have?
  4. What powers (if any) will the executive have?
  5. Is there a separate judiciary and interpreter of laws?
  6. What will the relationship look like between the national and state governments with this plan?

Again, these questions are meant to guide you, please create a summary using your own words.

Please do not copy and use your own words.

The assignment will be checked for plagiarism.
