The Broadway musical “Hamilton” is not just a cultural phenomenon or a favorite soundtrack for kids, it has also become an inspiration for educators looking for new ways to connect with their students. Recently 400 New York City public school teachers, most chosen by lottery, won tickets to see the play. Afterward, workshops hosted by the city's department of education and the Fund for Public Schools helped teachers develop lessons about topics like the U.S. Constitution, the presidency, and our Founding Fathers.

(Tickets to Hamilton and the professional development workshops that followed were made possible by Teach For America – New York and Barclays.) ____________________
