Teacher Prep

Print posters (p. 4-12) on cardstock and laminate if desired. Print one copy per student of pages 13-14. Before copying the assessment (p. 15), decide how many examples from the text you will require students to analyze and write that number in the box at the top of the page. Then make one copy per student.

How to Use this Character Archetypes Lesson

These materials support a mythology unit, The Lightning Thief or The Odyssey. This lesson is also a great introduction to the Common Core standard RL.8.9: Analyze how a modern work of fiction draws on themes, patterns of events, or character types from myths, traditional stories, or religious works such as the Bible, including describing how the material is rendered new.

Use the posters to create a bulletin board display or word wall. You can also project the PDF poster pages on your interactive whiteboard or projection screen to support classroom discussion as students take notes on the graphic organizers in their interactive notebooks. Ask students to brainstorm more examples from current fiction or from a class text.

The assessment works well with a wide range of science fiction and fantasy novels, as well as classical mythology. Since the assessment requires that students find textual evidence to support their claims, this organizer takes some time to complete. If you will be using it as a quiz during class time, it is helpful to have students annotate and flag examples of archetypes as they read.
