If you know me in real life, you know I have a *bit* of an obsession with the musical Hamilton. As in, I regularly perform a one-woman show while driving around the city of Surprise, I’ve seen it live twice (so far) and the call and response in my classroom is: Me: “The code word is Rochambeau, dig me?” Students: “Rochambeau!” Me: “You have your orders, now go, man, go!”
If you’re #Hamfam, you might get it. If not, I might seem a little off to you, but the combination of history and musical theater just really gets me every time I hear it (which is often).
My friend and fellow NBCT, Susan Collins, find inspiration in the lessons from the Founding Fathers and share part one of a two-part blog post on the Stories from School blog here.
