How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I have combined Star Wars with Whole Brain Teaching and have a super improver wall where students work their way up from Droid to Yoda. I also have my students follow the Jedi code and they earn rewards for each section (compassion, protection, etc.). We call our highlighters "light sabers" as we use them to correct our work. I also have a version of Growth Mindset in which Jedi have a growth mindset (believe they can learn and grow always with hard work) while Sith have a fixed mindset (I'm never going to get better). They actually call me the "Star Wars Teacher" which is easier than pronouncing my name!! LOL
