    Description

    The Broadway hit of the decade by Lin-Manuel Miranda and a national phenomenon, bringing Hamilton the musical into your classroom is a way to energize US history.

    We want you to love Hamilton as much as we do! In light of the Disney Plus release of the Hamilton movie, these lessons allow teachers to bring the diverse voices of Hamilton the musical into the classroom especially in the era of digital learning.

    *The first lesson link text introduces Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father, and Hamilton, the musical, to students. Students will practice close reading the lyrics available on Genius.com, view a video clip with a viewing guide, and write a narrative writing prompt.

    *The second lesson link text looks at the source material for the musical, Ron Chernow’s biography, Alexander Hamilton. Students review an original passage from the text and assess their reading with multiple-choice questions.

    *The third lesson link text engages students in a contest of creativity, rap battles.

    *The fourth lesson link text includes several varieties of social networking to support Hamilton’s prolific writing and persuasive appeals. Lessons include a study of four Federalist papers excerpts.

    Watch for a fifth lesson delivered as an update that includes the women of Hamilton and the foundation of women’s rights in America.
