How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I use star wars in the classroom in several different ways. I have lots of star wars themed shirts and posters. This allows me to engage with my students and gives us something to talk about and discuss. I have used Star Wars as an assessment to my student's understanding of our mythology unit and the hero's journey. I have also used star wars in my ancient history class. After the first trailer came out in November, I used the writing on Poe's flight suit to talk about alphabets and introduce the invent your own alphabet assigment that coincided with our study of mesopotamian writing. I also use the clips from the prequals to discuss how republics fall and turn into dictatorships. This is a great way to introduce to students the fall of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.
