This Hamilton and Burr : Compare and Contrast lesson plan also includes:
Who were Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton? High schoolers examine the character traits of these historical figures and watch the video, The Duel. Hamilton vs. Burr: An Event that Changed History (available from PBS), to gain an understanding of the relationship between the two. Learners complete their investigation by crafting an essay in which they compare and contrast Burr and Hamilton. Modification: You may be able to use another media source in place of the video.
