Hamilton and Poetry (Flexible Schedule)
We will study elements of poetry using the smash-hit musical Hamilton.

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about poetic and literary elements that we see in Hamilton. Also, students will observe these poetic elements in action as we study a few poems unrelated to Hamilton. My goal for this class is to take the students' love for Hamilton and use it to grow an appreciation and understanding of poetry.
I am a Hamilton fanatic! I've been teaching similar sections of this class for the last three years. Also, I have a bachelors in English, and I love to dig into a good poem.
Students do not need to purchase any curriculum materials. You can listen to Hamilton for free using Spotify or Youtube.
I strongly recommend that students listen to Hamilton before beginning class. Students of all ages are welcome, but keep in mind that Hamilton has a parental advisory warning. If you are not familiar with Hamilton, I strongly recommend that you listen and give your consent to your student studying the language used in Hamilton before enrolling in this course. Language will not be censored in my class.
