Meet sixth grader Reid D.: rapper, actor, and Nueva maverick. He has an insatiable passion for music. Last semester, he received the class assignment of his dreams, courtesy of his humanities teacher, Gary Kaplan. Inspired by the hip-hop-driven Broadway musical Hamilton, Gary invited students to simulate a debate between Federalists and Anti-Federalists in the form of a rap battle.
Hear more about Reid’s passion for music, and listen to his rap performance—the Federalist Papers are no match for this mic drop!
