Electing a President

I'm very excited to finally be able to teach social studies this year. My dream job, yay! To celebrate the realization of a life-long dream, the country has been kind enough to hold a presidential election that should prove to be quite interesting, to say the least. I've spent the past couple of days looking for resources to use with my students this fall, and just this morning found this fabulous video posted on Twitter.

Our friends at The Common Craft Show have taken a break from all things Web 2.0 to create Electing a U.S. President in Plain English. It's perfect!

After you watch the video, if you have a Digg account I know the folks at The Common Craft Show would appreciate a quick Digg here.

Hi Karen,
If you are interested in doing a "debate" between the candidates this year--your class taking one and my class taking one, or multiple groups in each class let me know. Sorry about the public proposal on plurk--no pressure to say yes ;)
