In the textbook that I use in my social studies class, it says that Federalists from New England went to the Hartford Convention. The textbook gave no names or pictures for that section. Was the convention big? I don’t know because of the lack of detail from the textbook. It didn’t even tell me when the convention happened!!
When I got on the internet, I found out so much more information on the Hartford Convention. Using Wikipedia, I found out that it was on December 15, 1814 through January 4, 1815. And that was only the first sentence! If I would have to rate the textbook, I would give it a 2 out of 10. Why? Well, it was incredibly boring, and I learned little from it. If I would rate Wikipedia, I would give it a 1o out 0f 10 because it tells me everything about the convention. It even tells me who went there! If I could change this, I would put more pictures, add a lot of more information, and not make it boring by putting an internet link at the side of the section if they want to watch a video on it just like they do in math books.
Here is a visual that I would add….
