Product Description

What is an "archetype" and how can your class benefit from an archetype analysis when studying the Hero's Journey (or Monomyth)? Introduce students to the following primary and secondary archetypes most commonly present in narratives: heroes, mentors, threshold guardians, tricksters, shadows, heralds, shapeshifters and allies. Teacher notes, student presentation with fun quiz and archetype note-taking pages that could be used for ANY novel or film analyzed in class!

Contents

  • Brief teacher notes for those unfamiliar with archetypes and why you should consider analyzing archetypes when deconstructing a text for steps/stages/acts of a Hero's Journey
  • 10-slide presentation outlining the common archetypes in the Monomyth narrative, with fun critical-thinking prompts for each archetype, "for each trickster below, can you determine how they trick the hero or cause mischief?" followed by trickster archetype examples such as Cheshire Cat, Loki, Gollum and Dobby.
  • Lined and unlined versions of the worksheet/graphic organizer for easy differentiation, giving students the choice to note-take, write sentences/paragraphs or doodle and draw ideas!

Teaching Suggestions

This collection of archetype resources can be used alongside my Hero's Journey Presentation for fuller student comprehension of the class text. Students could note-take from the archetypes presentation into the graphic organizer or, alternatively, once students have been taught the archetypes present in the hero's journey, they can analyse the class text to find examples of each archetype in pairs, groups or independently.
