How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

Being from outside the US, I don't quite fit all the boxes above. I'm a secondary music teacher in the UK - teaching 11-18. We're currently using the Learning Journey Matrix as an assessment tool - 1 (novice), 2 (beginning), 3 (developing), 4 (confident), 5 (expert) but I've found this a little dull. Instead my students aspire to Youngling, Padawan, Jedi Knight, Jedi Councillor and Jedi Master levels. We also talk a lot about growth mindset in school - something expertly demonstrated through light side vs dark side. My classroom contains a number of Star Wars posters and resources, which students already enjoy - even if some do see me as slightly crazy!
