Topic: George Washington As Our First President - Washington's Precedents for Presidents

 

 Today's Goal:  When the Founding Father were writing the Constitution, they designed the President of the

 United States with George Washington in mind.  However, no one on Earth had ever held a job like being 

 President of the United States.  George Washington had to interpret the Constitution and his own leadership

 qualities to establish the office of President of the United States.  Washington's presidency created a blue

 print or an example for all other presidents to follow.

 Topic: George Washington As President - Cabinet and First Political Parties

 

 Today's Goal:  Today we will continue to learn about George Washington as our first president. When

 Washington took office, he realized that he would need help doing all of the jobs assigned to the president in

 the Constitution.  Washington created a group of people to help him known as the "cabinet."  Washington's

 cabinet was an all star team of political talent.  However, these men all had different opinions and often argued

 about what was best for the country.  These arguments eventually turn into our first two "Political Parties." 

 Today you should complete parts 1 and 2 of the blue activity in the Hamilton's Financial Plan lesson below. 

 

 Today's Assignments:

 

1.  Participate in a class discussion of Washington's precedents as our first president. 

 

2.  Click on the link below to access the assignment.  Today you should complete parts #1 and #2 of the blue

     assignment.  You will need to create a new tab in your binder.

 Topic: George Washington As our First President  - Hamilton's Financial Plan

 

 Today's Goal:  When One of the biggest challenges George Washington had as our first president was fixing

 the nation's broken economy.  As Secretary of the Treasury, that job fell to Alexander Hamilton.  Hamilton

 came up with a brilliant plan to solve the nation's financial and credit issues.  His plan also set the course for

 the future of our nation's economic system.  However not everyone approved of Hamilton's plan.  George

 Washington had to find a compromise that resulted in a better national economy and the building of a new

 capital in Washington DC!
