Product Description
Use songs from the hit Broadway show "Hamilton" by Lin Manuel Miranda as an introduction to Rationalism and the Age of Reason. Pair this analysis with readings of "The Federalist Papers" or Thomas Paine's "The Crisis". Meant to be used in class or given as a supplementary activity for students to do on their own.

All songs (along with lyrics) can be found on Youtube.

We use the writing strategy of Jane Schaffer in my classes. The task on the activity has students write a mini-paragraph. This is similar to a short answer on a state test (ours is the Georgia Milestone).

T.S. - Topic Sentence (Make a claim!)
C.D. Concrete Detail (Give Evidence!)
C.M. Concrete Detail (Explain!)
C.S. Concluding Sentence (Wrap it up!)
