The American Master’s series lessons for teachers on George Lucas will consist of three major components: the power of myths concerning good and evil, the power of a hero’s journey, and the power of imagination and creativity. Each of these themes will be developed through an examination of values and popular culture. Students will read a variety of myths, conduct Internet research, engage in writing activities, construct debates, and create short projects as they learn about George Lucas and his contributions to society through his work.
