Dan Z’s First Blog for StarWars.com Now Available

My Star Wars.com Blog on Teaching Stormtrooper I am thrilled to announce that my first post for the Official Blog can now be found on Star Wars.com! I talk about how I incorporate Star Wars into the High School curriculum, as well as why using the Saga is relevant (as well as pertinent) to advancing critical thinking and analyzing literature. The support from our community has been fantastic, and I am grateful.

Getting to write a Blog for Star Wars has always been a dream of mine, and I am incredibly humbled by the experience. Be on the lookout for some references to our show, and help us spread the word! MTFBWY!

    It’s exceptionally cool. I, for one, am a bit jealous (but not too much since I get the shout-out). Nice going, Dan! 🙂

    Dan, it was so much fun to read your blog over at starwars.com! It was wonderful! I couldn’t help but lament how it would have been so nice to have had you for a teacher when I was school (although something would have had to have been done regarding flipping our ages since I am quite a bit older than you! lol). And thank you for expanding my mind. I always like to look up new words! 🙂
    Great job!!! 🙂
