PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Alexander Hamilton"- You know you have been "waiting in the wings" to use this catchy, startlingly original music and historically accurate cultural phenomenon in your classroom. Now you can!

Lesson 1 includes an introduction to a longer unit, available as a bundle.

Focusing on lyricist/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda's opening number, "Alexander Hamilton," the lesson includes a deep study of the performance and the song. Many resources including Manuel's hip hop references and interviews about his writing process are provided. Students will complete a rhetorical and discourse analysis of the lyrics.

Students will then review the themes for the song as well as the musical. Included in the materials is a link to a CBS Sunday Morning video clip on Hamilton, the musical. A viewing guide with a complete key will aid students in understanding Hamilton as an iconic telling of American’s story then by Americans now.

This EDITABLE lesson also includes a culminating narrative writing assessment, a biographical resume for Alexander Hamilton, which can be completed in paragraphs or a resume template. Two rubrics are provided for grading.
