    i would suggest you start out by praising the articles of confederation as a brilliant document that had to be speedily drafted and agreed after the cataclysmic change in the nations goverance then go on to say that not surprisingly such a speedily drafted document had weaknesses - go into them then go into the compromise of 1787 that led to the constitution being adopted the following year then praise the constitution showing that its main strength is that it is a living document that provides for its own amendment as and when there is a consenus that it is necessary

    The Articles of Confederation became effective on March 1, 1781, after all thirteen states had ratified them. The Articles made the states and legislature supreme. There was no executive branch. Judicial functions were very limited.

    The resulting government was weak. Efforts to make it stronger failed. A convention called in May 1787 to re-write the Articles decided to draft an entirely new Constitution.

    How many know that the state of Pennsylvania was misspelled as "Pensylvania" on the U.S. Constitution? And who knew that in 1876 an amendment to the Constitution was introduced that would have abolished the U.S. Senate? Or that another amendment, proposed in 1893, would have renamed the country the United States of the Earth?

    The Articles of Confederation were written during the American Revolution. Ben Franklin wrote the first draft. It did not pass because the colonists thought it gave too much power to a central government. After a great deal of discussion and correction, the articles were rewritten and ratified in 1781. The ratified Articles stated that each state had one vote in a newly formed Congress.

    It was soon obvious that the Articles were too weak to create a functioning central government. In 1787, the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia. Two of its strongest supporters were Ben Franklin and George Washington. In 1779, a new document went into effect. They called it the Constitution.

    Documents can sometimes be difficult to understand, especially if they are from another time period. I found it helpful to go online, type in what you are trying to study, and then type in the word "summary" after it. It will direct you to sites that break it down in understandable terms. Please refer to this website, which offers several summaries that may clarify the content for you: : http://www.bookrags.com/Articles_of_Confederation Referring to these summaries should give you an idea as to the weaknesses and strengths of the document. When you know that, you will be able to form a qualified opinion on whether you agree or disagree with it in part, or entirely. The reason for the document is that after the Revolutionary War, it was realized that a central (Federal) governing authority was needed to organize and unite the states, and to make decisions. Until then, each state had their own monetary system, trade rules, taxes, etc. In other words, they did not function as one country. They were often at odds with each other. The Articles of Confederation was the first legal document that established a union of the states, creating the country of the United States. Since we had no country at which to look for an example, our forefathers had to figure things out as they went along. Therefore, the government under the Articles of Confederation was not perfect. In June of 1788, the Constitution replaced it.
