How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I have my room sprinkled with Star Wars merchandise and posters to start conversations. I have only mentioned the movies in lecture depending on the content I might be covering that day. It usually isn't a part of my classroom planning...but I would like to use it more to connect history with the movies. Surprisingly, a majority of my students are not fans. This makes me sad...I think they were too young to experience the prequels and have no idea what the classic trilogy is about.
