Star Wars Villains: General Grievous

Students will investigate the character of General Grievous -- his personality, story arc, and his growth into a Star Wars villain. Grievous's quest for dominance and power is a cautionary tale with lessons applicable to our own lives.

Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to make connections to how General Grievous'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 a Star Wars fanatic, and have seen the main films too many times to count.  My friends and I have spent many long nights discussing and debating every topic related to Star Wars.

As a teacher, I have extensive experience in managing classroom discussions of all ages and ability levels.  My goal is to ensure that every student has a chance to make contributions, provide their opinion, and/or demonstrate what they've learned.
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.
Students will receive informal feedback from me in the Classroom chat, before and after our class. Feedback will also occur during the class session as well.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Mild sci-fi violence is present throughout all the Star Wars films, and themes of revenge, temptation, and betrayal are especially prevalent.
