Electoral College

This inquiry leads students through an investigation of the Electoral College. By investigating the compelling question “Do we need the Electoral College?” students evaluate process the United States uses to select the president.  The formative performance tasks help students build knowledge and practice skills through the course of the inquiry and support students as they seek understand how their votes are counted in a presidential election.  As a summative assessment, students create an evidence-based argument about the Electoral College.
