How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

To date I have used the music as an example of classical music when I teach the Renaissance. I have a study corner complete with a life size cut out of C3PO and R2-D2. I started the year with a Star Wars Bulletin board and have used characters and movie clips to enhance lessons. (i.e. 'storm troopers' to WWII, SDI (star wars) Reagan Era) plenty of discussions and relating historical figures to characters in the movies. We regularly get words of wisdom from a desktop Yoda who has twenty saying stored and I use them as key questions or discussion topics. I am a huge fan and would love to incorporate more into the daily routine.
