Reflection: Joy Ready, Aim, Fire! Wait! What Truly Happened That Day? - Section 1: Introduction and Video


My students really liked this movie. I was surprised since it was a documentary. I think since the kids had a real purpose here and because the information is so "real world" the students really bought in and enjoyed themselves. They wanted to chat about the movie for quite some time and had amazing ideas to share. The kids started to think that Hamilton planned the whole thing out because he was so depressed and was willing to die to preserve his honor. They felt that if he was such a proud man, that he knew he could die and make Burr the ultimate "bad-guy" They truly felt that Hamilton hated Burr that much. I was blown away by what they discussed.
