Posted by Gilder Lehrman Staff on Thursday, 08/13/2020
The Hamilton Education Program Online (#EduHamOnline) is now available to all schools with students in grades 6–12 in the 2020–2021 school year. Completely adaptable for remote or hybrid learning, the program encourages students to use their newfound knowledge to create original pieces—a song, rap, spoken word, or scene—at the end of their remote or physical classroom studies on the founding era using primary source documents like those Lin-Manuel Miranda used in writing Hamilton.
EduHam Online expands access and gives middle school students the opportunity to participate in the education program for the first time. Along with high school students, they will engage in a custom-designed education program that integrates the study of the founding era with the performing arts. The program features a wealth of materials on the #EduHamOnline website, including information about more than 45 founding era figures, 14 events, and 24 key documents, as well as 175 supporting documents, video clips from Hamilton, and more.
The video below highlights experiences of students and teachers during the successful pilot of the EduHam Online program during the 2019–2020 academic year with 73 schools across the country.
