Description

Drawing from a catchy song from Hamilton, students will learn the structure of an argumentative speech, and craft their own effective argument essay about following love vs. reason. Students will use guiding outlines to get their ideas together and craft a well-structured paper. The song matter will bring out the best kind of passion in students, the same one they’ll need to take a stance about potential real-life relationship decisions.

The teacher may decide to extend this lesson with a debate to really polish student's argumentative skills.

Included:

  • A 10-page document with teacher's notes, suggested timeline, two different outline handouts, a handout for preparing for a debate, links to the official song lyrics, an animated video and Prezi for research, evaluating criteria for an argumentative essay and a debate.
  • Editable Word format of Evaluating Criteria
  • Introduction to Hamilton and "Satisfied" PowerPoint Presentation (13-slides)
  • Debate rules and procedures Power Point Presentation (19 slides)

This unit for advanced middle school/ high school ELL/ESL students will get you about 5-8 days of engaging classroom work, and it's Common Core aligned. I'm sure you'll students will love jammin' and arguing about Hamilton just as mine did!
