Communication with Hamilton

When I first heard Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton I was, like everyone else, immediately blown away by its combination of music, history, emotion and empowerment. My second reaction is one only teachers can relate to: asking “How can I use this in my teaching?” I’ve been working on this project since 2015. Thanks to a grant from Open Oregon, I’ve been able to improve my materials and create a workbook that I hope will let others access this incredible musical.

The workbook is designed to be used over a 10-week college communication course. It is designed to cover academic listening, pronunciation, and public speaking, using a thematic approach tied to the musical Hamilton. Ideally, students would access the workbook in print form, as it is meant to be an interactive “notebook” which will be filled with notes by the end of term.
