Get ready to get your Hamilton on!
The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and Hamilton have announced the launch of EduHam at Home, a free digital program for students and their families to explore the world of Hamilton and America’s founding era together. It will allow them to create and perform their own narrative in the form of a song, rap, spoken word, or scene.
Students can submit their own performances and select performances will be shown on the Hamilton app.
From the official release:
EduHam at Home is an extension of the Hamilton Education Program and the Hamilton Education Program Online, created in 2015 by Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and The Rockefeller Foundation, with the goal of integrating the study of American history with the performing arts. To date, more than 160,000 students from 1,985 Title I-eligible high schools across America have participated in the program in 25 cities.
