How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

My classroom is completely decked out with Star Wars toys, posters, and various items of memorabilia from the franchise. As a lifelong fan, I try to invite my students to enjoy the magic that is Star Wars. In Language Arts, I use the movies to teach topics such as universal theme as well as to show the importance of sound when we do our media study lessons. Finally, I teach a unit on Hero's Journey that begins with a movie marathon of the original trilogy. I feel that by exposing my sixth graders to these concepts, they will be better prepared to read and understand Shakespeare and Homer when they reach high school. Plus, there is nothing better than watching a kid see the movies for the first time!
