This CCSS-aligned unit plan is a flexible unit that studies the Hero's Journey and Archetypes, and culminates in two essays. Heroes are studied in film, short story, and novel. The unit then extends to the study and creation of Superheroes. This resource contains links to material that I did not feel comfortable claiming, and I tried to provide alternate ideas in cases where materials were an issue. This was a fun end-of-year and summer school unit, although it can certainly be taught at any time.
