The Electoral College: A Programmed Course.
Daniel, Max
The programmed course outline for an American government course is designed to help students understand the electoral college. The outline contains questions and answers for the students taking the programmed course. Students are directed to reply to each of the 37 questions before looking at the answer printed immediately below the question. If unable to correctly respond to the question, the students are directed to look at the answer and reread the question until they understand the material. Hints are provided for particularly difficult questions. A summary is presented after the first 11 questions and a self-test is included as question 37. Students are directed to continue going through the preceding program of 36 questions until they can correctly answer the ten questions in the self-test. Test questions are (1) who elects the president of the United States? (2) how many electors are there? (3) what three components equal the total number of electoral votes? (4) how are a state's electoral votes determined? (5) who has the constitutional authority to select the electors in each state? (6) who nominates the slate of electors in each state that represents the candidate on the general election ballot? (7) when does the electoral college meet? (8) how many electoral votes are required to become president? (9) what happens if no candidate receives a majority? (10) which slate of electors casts its ballots? (Author/DB)
