Hamilton = Best Field Trip Ever?
Huge thanks to Ms. Underwood for winning a grant for our AP US History students (11th graders) to see the groundbreaking Hamilton musical at the Pantages for free (well, $10 but we'll cover that). Still, the students do have to earn their ticket... by creating a Hamilton-themed music video! HGM curriculum rocks... and raps.
