How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

Previously I've incorporated Star Wars in as many aspects as possible. I decorate my room with Star Wars material, I've got Star Wars poem posters I created, I also have conversations with the students on a daily basis that analyze characters and plot. This last year I had a count down on my board to when The Force Awakens was released. I've helped organize The Force Awakens movie night. On May 4th I created a Star Wars quiz for my students that they absolutely loved. They all know I love it and they bring me SW related gifts. But more than that, I'm able to connect with them because we can have real conversations and they see that I'm not just an average English teacher. Additionally, I was recently asked to teach a Star Wars elective class this coming year. I have full capacity to create the class in the manner I choose. I'm developing ideas on analysis and comparisons to literature etc.
