How did American constitutionalism after 1776 differ from the British constitutional principles that the colonists had accepted and revered before 1776?

My U.S. History mid-term is coming up, and I've been behind on my studying.

It was quite different to the policies that the Brits had had because they wanted to distance themselves and prove that they could do things differently and better with their own policies that suited them better than the ones that the Brits had imposed.
