How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I use Star Wars as an introduction to a Hero's Journey unit that includes Greek mythology, a retelling of The Iliad, and excerpts from The Odyssey. I saw Star Wars: The Magic of Myth in the 1990s at the Air and Space Museum. That got me hooked on the idea of Campbell's The Hero's Journey in literature and film, with Star Wars being a conscious effort to follow Campbell's ideas.
