Anthony Chaput, McKee HS '18, performing the group's poem from Mr. Chris App Jr. 'a US History class on the Broadway stage. The 1200 students selected to see Hamilton today is due to the Gilda Lehrman Foundation, Chancellor Farina, and the wonderful creators of the show. McKee had 60 students and 4 chaperones at the day long event.
When a school is selected to have a group of students see the show, the cooperating teacher receives educational resources, of which the 24-page booklet, which includes scaffolded projects, standards, and culminates in the classes selecting one representative to perform the project. It is so exciting to see how the final project provides an opportunity for students to perform on the actual stage of the show and see the show. WOW!
