Delightful New “Hamilton” Video

As regular readers know, I’m a big fan of Hamilton: An American Musical (see The Best Teaching/Learning Resources On The Musical, “Hamilton”).

Earlier this year, Weird Al Yankovic did ‘The Hamilton Polka’ as part of a series of songs the Hamilton producers released – they were all adapted from the original music.

Yesterday, the cast members of Hamilton did their own version of Yankovic’s “polka,” and it’s a lot of fun:

Video From Hamilton Mixtape Just Released: “Wrote My Way Out”

A music video from the Hamilton Mixtape (which are songs that build on the original music) has just been released for “Wrote My Way Out.”

I’ve previously shared how I use this song with my English Language Learners (see Using “Wrote My Way Out” From Hamilton With Students (Including Writing Prompt) ).

You can read the lyrics to the Mixtape version here.

Here is the music video, followed by a lyrics video of the song.

Two New Cool Hamilton Resources

 

As regular readers know, I’m a big Hamilton fan (and I got to see it in San Francisco last month!).

You can see a zillion related resources at The Best Teaching/Learning Resources On The Musical, “Hamilton”

Here are two new additions to the list:

The Library of Congress has just digitized a collection of his letters, including one he wrote at the age of twelve and the one he wrote to his wife the night before his duel and death.  You can see the collection here and read about it in this NPR story: I Saved Every Letter You Wrote Me: The Library of Congress Digitizes Hamilton

‘Hamilton’ Hip-Hop, by Students is a NY Times interactive showing-off Hamilton-inspired raps by students. The neat twist is that they are shown as a multiple-choice cloze, so you have to choose which words fit.
