How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I grew up with an older brother who loved Star Wars and I kind of liked it, enough to know episodes 4-6 are far superior to episodes 1-3 :). It was not until I had my boys that I really started getting into the whole series. From the cartoon versions on the different Disney Channels, the books, and toys really got me excited about the who franchise. After seeing the most recent installment, I stumbled upon a facebook post about using Star Wars in the classroom and I realized how perfect it would be for my next unit of study. My colleagues and I are doing a thematic unit based on American's involvement in global conflicts and these lessons will be sure to draw students in when we do break-out sessions.
