Unit materials covering the heroes of Ancient Greece (pre Trojan War) and Joseph Campbell's Heroic Cycle / Heroes Journey. Heroes covered (using Edith Hamilton's mythology as a source): Perseus, Theseus, Hercules, Atalanta, and Bellerophon. I've included a study guide for the hero myths, journal reflection, essay assignment (prompt, outline, rubric), for both honors and academic levels, a group presentation project, and introductory slides covering heroic qualities/examples through various cultures. For the Heroic Cycle there is a summary of the stages of Campbell's heroes journey, slides showing the Lion King as it fits the cycle, and a journal reflection.
When possible, I've included both pdf and word document files.
My students enjoy this unit. I hope you will find some, if not all, of it useful as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for looking!
