The Electoral College
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This is a project we created as part of our education class. In it, is a way to engage the students in the Electoral College and have them do a paper to research the topic and how it related to the United States today. Now only do they do deep thinking about their own thoughts on this topic, but can compare and contrast today's America with late 18th century America and form ideas based on these two eras. It gets the students to debate each other, while also getting to see what the Founders were thinking when they created the Electoral College and whether it applies today or not, meaning that they can study the Constitution as well, and develop thought on whether they think it should be taken liberally or more strictly.
