Star Wars class

Author
Time

next Saturday I'm teaching a four hour class on "Star Wars." 

I'll be covering

  • Hologram technology.
  • Modern prosthetic limbs.
  • The Hero's Journey
  • How to build a lightsabre. 
  • Lucas's filmic inspirations
  • The physics of real spaceflight.

Any other ideas what I should cover? High school students.

I'm trying to find a brief video about The Special Editions, and what's wrong with Lucas and film preservation. I have a reading to pass out stolen from SaveStarWars.com, but videos are always good.

^I've said it before and I'll say it again -- Artoo is not attracted to droids of the same sex!

Religious fundamentalism and irreligious fundamentalism are two sides of the same worthless coin.

In my mind I picture you taping a paper towel tube to a flashlight and waving it around going "BRRRRrrrrsshhh BWwwwoooow" while the class looks on in horror.

 teach them that the PT sucks and Jar Jar Binks should burn in hell for eternity.  Make signing the petition a requirement for passing the class.

1) I'm sure current high school students don't need to be taught that the PT sucks.

2) The petition is 100% meaningless and will have zero impact on the world. 

Don’t do drugs, unless you’re with me.

Oh, c'mon now, that's harsh.

Jar Jar should burn for a million years, and that's it.

it needs to be reinforced.

maybe, but I can't give it up.

I'd say "Sieg heil", but my intent in saying it would probably get misconstrued.

I was fun. At the end of the day I gave a copy of "Revisited" to one student, and Harmy's "Despecialized" to another.
