This short biography lesson is focused on Lin Manuel Miranda, the Broadway Tony award winner of Hamilton the musical.

Finally using a One Pager assignment, students design his life in a creative way sharing with their fellow classmates afterward.

The teacher and students will need the internet to complete this assignment.

Many teachers combine these biographies with others of mine such as Denzel Washington, actresses Audra McDonald and Meryl Streep or designer Ming Cho Lee. Or they tie it to my lesson concerning the Tony Awards at: Tony Awards Lesson

HOW DO I USE THIS IN MY CLASSROOM: If your students need to do a research project, these lessons are good ones to introduce the unit. Perhaps more students would pursue a career in the theater arts if we show them their favorite artists' journeys and what is possible for them, too?

These bios. are a great spring board for discussion concerning goals, tenacity, determination and professionalism.

There is more to theater than just improvisation, plays and games. I teach theater with a twist. This is an example of what I mean.

The teacher will need access to the internet.
