Darth Vader Studying Skywalkers The Empire Striketh Back Author Ian Doescher Makes a Classroom Appearance Star Wars Blog A few weeks ago, Ian Doescher made an appearance in my classroom to talk to my Freshmen about William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, The Empire Striketh Back, and Shakespeare. It was an amazing experience for everyone, and Star Wars.com was kind enough to allow me to Blog about the experience. Check out the link below, and let me know what you think!

    Dr. Who, may I please borrow your TARDIS so I can go back to High School?

    Not that it would make much of a difference because, Mr. Zehr (Dan Z) wouldn’t have been old enough to be teaching back then 😉

    Awesome entry/blog my friend!

    Mr. Zehr? 😉 Sorry. I couldn’t help but chuckle a bit when I read that in a caption. 😉 You’ll always be just Dan to me. 😉
    What an absolutely awesome opportunity for your students! Just AWESOME! 🙂 I wish I had a teacher like you when I was in school.
    What a treat for your students AND Ian D. I can’t wait to read his newest incantation of the Star Wars/Shakespeare mashup. I’m so glad you got to share your story over at the official site. Maybe you’ll inspire others … both educators and students (and even those of us who haven’t been in a classroom for a while 😉 ). 🙂 MTFBWY 🙂
