Students hear the performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's song "Almost Like Praying," a benefit for the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. Students discuss the song, see a video about how others have responded to the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico, and consider how they might use their own talents and strengths to help.
Activites will help students:
● Understand the power of allies in civil and human rights movements.
● Understand the importance of working well across ethnic groups, religious orientations and cultures.
● Draw on a primary source to write a poem about the importance of allies.
