Lesson Plans for In the Heights

In The Heights Lesson Plans

Like many of you, I spent the weekend watching In the Heights. I read that some of you were renting theaters to go and watch with your trusted group of family and friends. Others, like myself, clicked on HBO Max and watched at home. 

I was fascinated to find that the movie finds its roots in Lin-Manuel Miranda's undergraduate imagination. He wrote his first draft of it in 1999 while attending Wesleyan. In 2004, he worked with author, Quiara Alegría Hudes, to further develop it and by 2008 it premiered on Broadway. 

I love it, of course. And decided it would be great for my teen. 

Psst! Did you know that it's available as a book?

I've heard a few teachers talking about it and started wondering if there were lesson plans available. And, yes! There are!

Listing them here for your pleasure...
