How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

Up to this point, I've used SW only in a tentative manner. It's been more like soft background music up to this point with students fully aware that "Mr. P's a SW geek." As my classroom begins to orient itself to a 1:1 model, I look forward to capitalizing on both the franchise's heightened profile and student access to technology employing both in more high-profile and creative ways. I presently use SW motifs, graphics, and references in the classroom and on the classroom websites. I've used SW for Hero's Journey, literature and poetry lessons; as the subject of extra-credit offerings, and as the theme for an Outside Reading club.
