Lesson Plan

This lesson plan titled Duels & Debates: The Hamilton/Burr Story is geared towards grade levels 8-12 and includes a variety of in-classroom activities which are free for use by teachers. These activities connect with information found on the hamiltonburr.org website and with objects in the Fenimore Art Museum collection. The lesson plan also provides instructions for conducting an in-class ‘creative debate’ in which students use the information they have learned about Hamilton, Burr, and the issues their two political parties disagreed upon, to create a piece of music, creative writing, or visual art piece to represent their side of the debate.
