The states now faced serious and complicated questions about how to make their rules. What did it mean to replace royal authority with institutions based on popular rule? How was "popular sovereignty" (the idea that the people were the highest authority) to be institutionalized in the new state governments? For that matter, who were "the people"?

The ratification process started when the Congress turned the Constitution over to the state legislatures for consideration through specially elected state conventions of the people. Five state conventions voted to approve the Constitution almost immediately (December 1787 to January 1788) and in all of them the vote was unanimous (Delaware, New Jersey, Georgia) or lopsided (Pennsylvania, Connecticut). Clearly, the well-organized Federalists began the contest in strong shape as they rapidly secured five of the nine states needed to make the Constitution law. The Constitution seemed to have easy, broad, and popular support.

Students will learn about their state as they collect and organize business information using State Facts for Students, a U.S. Census Bureau data tool.

This course will serve as both an introduction to contemporary political philosophy and a way to explore issues of pluralism and multiculturalism. Racial and ethnic groups, national minorities, aboriginals, women, sexual minorities, and other groups have organized to highlight injustice and demand recognition and accommodation on the basis of their differences. In practice, democratic states have granted a variety of group-differentiated rights, such as exemptions from generally applicable laws, special representation rights, language rights, or limited self-government rights, to different types of groups. This course will examine how different theories of citizenship address the challenges raised by different forms of pluralism. We will focus in particular on the following questions: - Does justice require granting group-differentiated rights? - Do group-differentiated rights conflict with liberal and democratic commitments to equality and justice for all citizens? - What, if anything, can hold a multi-religious, multicultural society together? Why should the citizens of such a society want to hold together?

Interactive resource codes either "OECD large regions" usually the primary subnational administrative unit of an OECD country -- (eg. states) or "OECD small regions" usually the secondary subnmational administrative unit -- (eg. counties) by demographic, economic and educational statistics. Regions are compared on a color coded map (for any single variable), scatter plot (for any two variables, table lens or data grid (for a large number of variables. Allows transnational comparisons across all rich countries, but also allows the specificity of focusing on subnational -- and sometimes very small -- geographic units.
Students will use a U.S. Census Bureau data tool called State Facts for Students to analyze the population data of their state. They will write the data in several forms, round the numbers, and then compare their state’s population with that of a nearby state.
