I have been teaching high school for four years in Bakersfield, California. I teach 9th grade English and 9-12 ESL at South High.

How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I currently use Star Wars as a culmination/transition from "The Odyssey" and a study of the Hero's Journey to Shakespeare's and "Romeo and Juliet." We analyze clips from the Star Wars saga in chronological order using David Adams Leeming's book "Mythology: the Voyage of the Hero." We then use a scene from "William Shakespeare's Star Wars" to introduce language and literary devices and prepare students for "Romeo and Juliet."
