One of our goals going into the new school year is to work on creating a series of student friendly civics videos, including ones for each of the benchmarks. Indeed, we have someone working right now on a new video for Benchmark SS.7.C.1.6, which addresses the Preamble. There will be opportunities for us, however, to include additional civics-oriented content rich videos and this new one is our first! This video explores what the Electoral College is, how it impacts elections, and the relationship between the Electoral College and the popular vote.
We hope that you find this video useful, and please feel free to send me feedback or leave a comment!
