Understanding the Electoral College: A Basic Guide to the Electoral College
We haven't actually used this yet. I ordered it for next school year because my daughter needs at least a half-year credit for Civics. I purchased this along with "Government 101" which will meet the requirements for Civics. The booklets are user friendly and can be used along with a History or Constitution course or stand alone. They seem very concise with reading assignments, questions to answer and projects to complete. It also gives some freedom of choice as to what outside reading you do - so that you can pick what will fit your child's interest, age, etc. Overall, I'm impressed with what I've seen as I have read through the booklets. You can't beat the price! I look forward to using this with my ninth grader during an election year!
