Our great pal Dan Zehr strikes back over at StarWars.com with his latest entry in his Studying Skyalkers series article looking at one of his classes, his very insightful students, #teamjedinews member John Morton and a disection of The Force Awakens.
There are times as an educator when truly amazing moments happen in your classroom. These moments are unforgettable, because you get to witness authentic, viable learning that transcends the ordinary, and delves into the extraordinary. When you can add elements of the Star Wars saga into the mix, in the person of John Morton, then you truly are in for something special. As Star Wars fans know, John Morton is best known for his portrayal of Dak Ralter in The Empire Strikes Back, and he recently made a virtual appearance in my British Literature English classes that we won’t soon forget.
