Star Wars and Shakespeare

If you're an ELA teacher and having difficulty getting your students interested in Ye Olde English and Shakespeare, try introducing them to Ian Doescher's William Shakespeare's Star Wars series. Not only are these a fun and fresh look at Star Wars, but a student's familiarity with the films may help them begin to find meaning in those strange words penned by Shakespeare. It might even be fun to have them take a stab at re-writing a Star Wars scene in the voice of Shakespeare.
