Use the groundbreaking musical to teach literacy and analysis skills

By Dona Rice and Emily Smith. Enliven students’ explorations of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical with engaging activities that incorporate research-based literacy skills while leading students through literary analysis. The guide encourages students to think creatively about Hamilton through such strategies and exercises as close reading, reader-response writing prompts, text-based vocabulary practice, leveled comprehension questions, and cross-curricular activities. The activities not only have students delve into the musical’s themes, language, and structure, but also get them to consider theatrical elements such as costumes, choreography, lighting, and staging. Also included are culminating activities, a comprehension assessment quiz, and an essay question with a rubric. Grades 6–12. Answer key. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Shell Education. 72 pages. ©2017.
