Join the Force for Good

Star Wars mania is in full force with the release of the seventh film in the series. Local members of the Star Wars costuming organization 501st Legion are traveling to schools in galaxy garb spreading the message that bullying is a bad use of the force. The idea for the program, called Heart of the Force, is that if students see the bright green alien Greedo getting picked on by a pack of sleek, white storm troopers, it may mean more. The group will put on short, interactive role-playing presentations and have children pledge to respect others and stand up for what’s right.

Plus: The website Star Wars in the Classroom has a database of nearly 400 teachers, known as “The Rogues,” who incorporate concepts from the films’ stories into their teaching—even at the high school level. Teachers post ways they use Star Wars to hammer home history concepts or character development techniques.
