Star Wars Heroes: Padme Amidala
Students will investigate the character of Padme Amidala -- her personality, story arc, and her transformation into a Star Wars hero. We will make broader connections to how Padme's journey can be a valuable learning tool in our own lives.
Has Queen (Senator) Padme Amidala always been one of your heroes? Then this class is for you! This is a highly-interactive, discussion-based class that encourages student engagement and conversation.

Students will be able to make connections to how Padme's journey in Star Wars contains valuable lessons that are applicable to our own lives. Students will also get the opportunity to hone their critical thinking skills, as well as practice having respectful conversations with their peers.
I am what you might call a Star Wars fanatic, and have seen the main films too many times to count.

In the days prior to the meeting, I will provide a brief handout that contains guidelines for our discussion on our Classroom page, along with a list of a handful of questions and topics I plan for us to discuss.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Padme's journey in Star Wars has its dark moments -- highlighted by her witnessing the destruction of the Republic. In addition to mild sci-fi violence being present throughout all the Star Wars films, themes of revenge, temptation, and betrayal are also prevalent.
