Roundtable

Rise Up! Developing Social and Emotional Skills Through the Lens of Hamilton

Friday, November 10
3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 1

Conceivably, there is no more popular literary work today than the Broadway musical Hamilton. Hamilton is ideal for gifted students’ social-emotional development. The presenters share a secondary-level language arts unit designed to develop gifted students’ psychosocial skills through the lens of Hamilton. Students explore characters and themes in the Hamilton lyrics and draw parallels with themselves. Essential questions allow deep reflection while providing a framework for thinking critically about the content and connections to their lives. Lessons focus on Idealism, Empathy, Perseverance, Resilience, Identity, Non-Conformity, and Risk-Taking.
