The Electoral College DBQ and Video

Over the years I have found that teaching the Electoral College is one of the hardest things for my students to remember as it seems counterintuitive to a democratic republic (which I point out we were not set up to be).  Right now I like the video above the best, but here and here are two other alternative short explanations.  We are going to also have the students answer the questions on this Electoral College Mini-Q and then write a FRQ instead of an entire essay.
