I'm a proponent of the School of Geek. Not only do comics, super heroes, sci-fi and fantasy lend themselves to popular culture, but it's also fun to show students how they are related to traditional areas of the curriculum. Star Wars is an epic story that is simply fun to use in the classroom and also accentuates my reputation of being the Geek Teacher. Writing for,, and BACK ISSUE magazine also help a little bit!
