I did something a little different this week, and instead of writing a blog post I thought that given the topic, it would be more beneficial to explain it verbally in the video below.
Background: On Tuesday morning, I scrapped my plans of doing guided reading groups and instead read and had a seminar on the Electoral College. My students had come in with so many questions and opinions about the election, but most of them did not know a lot about the process of voting in the United States. Thus, we spent the next hour reading about and holding a seminar type of discussion on the process of voting.
Here is a video that I created explaining the seminar I did with my students on the Electoral College.
