In this episode we watched Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and did an evaluation of Yoda’s teaching. Yoda isn’t a typical teacher like we’ve seen in the other movies we’ve reviewed. He’s doing a 1:1 Jedi training with Luke Skywalker. His methods may seem unconventional, but he gets results.
We went into a lot of detail about Yoda’s backstory. Kathryn brought a lot of fun facts. We also discussed growth mindset, teacher face, and dealing with whiny students.
Looking at the movie with a focus on the teaching made us wonder what Yoda would be like as a classroom teacher in his youth. We would love to see a teacher movie starring young Yoda.
We’d love to hear your thoughts about Yoda’s teaching. We’d also love more info about Yoda’s back story.
And hey, here’s a weird video of Yoda singing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9TIC2jpBiU
