Sherman's plan is referring to a plan created by Roger Sherman, a plan otherwise known as the Great Compromise or the Connecticut Compromise. In colonial times, when states were debating whether representation in the houses should be based on representation (as voted on by the big states) or equally, one vote per state (as voted on by the small states). The Great Compromise called up for a plan with two Legislative Houses, one with representation based on population (thus pleasing the larger states) and the other with representation with one member per state (pleasing the smaller states).
