Founded on principles from Joseph Campbell’s book entitled The Hero with a Thousand Faces. The hero’s journey shows us that many common patterns run through hero myths and stories from around the world. This unit uses graphics and vocabulary to help students to understand the different steps of the journey and how they can apply it to their own lives. Students will question what makes a hero and begin to identify hero qualities within themselves. Includes student handouts, lesson plans, quizzes, test, power point and assessment.
