How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I teach primarily composition and writing classes, so there are lots of ways that the movies themselves provide opportunities for comp/rhet theory in the classroom as well as moments of ethos/pathos/logos/kairos - I have used Star Wars to teach the rhetorical modes quite often! There's also numerous ways I've used SW to teach literature (most recently in a Great Books class in tandem with Beowulf and The Hero's Journey. I myself am working on research which ties Bettelheim to TFA and other children's lit theory/scaffolding.
