Electing the President in the USA

In the USA we talk about "one person, one vote"... yet that is not how the president of the country is chosen. And sometimes that's a bit difficult to explain.

CommonCraft--the company that produces the excellent "in plain English" videos--has created a video to do the explaining.

Check it out!

I just wanted to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed your class today. I have learned so much and believe it or not I Don't have a headache! I am so excited to start using my new wiki and blogging techniques. Thank you so much for you in depth teaching. You are so patient. I believe as educators we must constantly be learning in order to pass the learning onto others. I feel that this day has been one of those moments where I am have reflected on how I teach and how I need to change some of my instructional techniques. Thank you for that.
