George Washington’s farewell address has captured the imagination of every generation of American since his letter’s publication in 1796. As one of the great pieces of writing from the Early Republic period, it’s commonly read by students of American history. In the address, Washington warns against factionalism, permanent alliances, and touches on his hopes and aspirations for the young country he worked so hard to create.

In this lesson, students will listen to selections of Lin Manuel Miranda’s song “One Last Time” as a lead-in to reading an abridged version of Washington’s farewell address. While reading, students will be asked to take margin notes explaining what the meaning of each paragraph is in their own words. To aid in this, challenging vocab words are underlined and defined at the top of each page. A homework assignment prompt is provided to help students with processing. Teacher notes and an annotated key are included.
