How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I use Star Wars in just about anything I teach whether it's language arts, social studies, or technology. In language arts, I use excerpts from the popular Origami books to help with reading fluency. I have used Star Wars ideas for creative writing prompts. I have used the opening sequences of the movies to help teach the idea of exposition as it relates to a story's plot. Soon I will be using the new Star Wars coding program to encourage girls to code during our school's Hour of Code celebration. And I sponsor a Star Wars club at our school--game mastering a Star Wars RPG.
