HAMILTON Online Education

Classroom Activities and Digital Resources Through Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History

Ages 13+

The goal of the Hamilton Education Program Online is to help students in grades 6–12 see the relevance of the Founding Era by using primary sources to create a performance piece (e.g., a song, rap, poem, or scene) following the model used by Lin-Manuel Miranda to create the musical HAMILTON.

  • The program consists of classroom activities and digital resources that can be incorporated into a regular curriculum on the Founding Era.
  • Students participating in the program will have the chance to submit their performance piece and be selected to see a performance of HAMILTON in New York City.
