Study Guide Survey of United States Government and Constitution Appendix A, Study Guide, Chapter 3 Roadmap Image Alternate or Long Description ( from page 8) This image illustrates a concept map using one of the end of chapter summaries of your learning resource. It is color-coded and laid out with individual shapes enclosing text and arrows, to emphasize that sections or terms of the summaries can be used by you as a study tool. You can break down the summaries, identify terms, words, and themes, and use these to help you see connecting concepts. The larger paragraph is entitled “3.3 From Revolution to Confederation”, and is followed by the paragraph “After independence, a government was needed to replace the British monarchy. The Americans chose a republic, and defined the structure of that republic in the Articles of Confederation. Although the Articles guaranteed the states the independence they coveted, they were a failure; they left the central government too weak to deal with disorder and insurrection.” The first point of emphasis is about independence. Independence of the states also created a weak central government with very little power to engage in setting policies and enforcing them, such as no power to tax. The second point highlights the word “republic” in the paragraph. It defines it as “a government rooted in the consent of the governed, whose power is exercised by elected representatives responsible to the governed”. The third highlighted area leads from the highlighted term “Articles of Confederation” to emphasize state sovereignty, “In a confederation, the states retain their sovereignty, which means that each has supreme power within its border”.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
