The Common Craft people have come out with their latest Plain English video. They’ve mostly focused on tech tools over the last few years but this one is aimed directly at social studies teachers.

They’ve created Electing a US President in Plain English in anticipation of the November election. Some pretty good stuff. Nice way to introduce a government unit!
