PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Constitution Unit - Electoral College

Constitution - Electoral College

Aim: How is the president of the United States elected?

Included in this product:
• Title page
• Do Now: Student-centered critical thinking question - How is the president of the United States elected?
• What is the Electoral College reading passage with scaffolding questions
• Simulation/Activity: Testing out the Electoral College with a mock-Class President election
• Electoral Voting Map/Map question
• Schoolhouse Rock "I'm Gonna Send Your Vote to College" scaffolding questions corresponding to lyrics {NOTE: I do not attach the lyrics in this product. They are not mine to sell! However, you can find them easily online}
• Application/Closing/Higher Order thinking question
• Two "official" class president election ballots ;)

★ NOTE: This is usually a two-day lesson with my students.

Students will research and understand the structure of the electoral college, the background and weaknesses of the electoral college, the importance of the "magic" 271 number a candidate needs to get elected, and the understanding that winning the popular vote does not determine the presidency

Adheres to Social Studies Common Core Standards - research, application, literacy, vocabulary

Differentiation: cooperative {students may work in pairs/groups according to teacher's discretion for activities}; questions are scaffolded; students participate in a real-life simulation
