Included is a presentation for students on the Hero's Journey. Please note that this is a modified version of the Hero's Journey and does not include all of stages originally outlined by Joseph Campbell. The PowerPoint comes with a copy of the adapted journey, and a guided notes version of the PowerPoint, so students can take notes on the stages.
I use Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, and Hercules to teach the hero's journey. Then we read a hero myth together and apply the stages. Finally, I have students read another hero story in small groups and have them create a poster showing the journey. The poster should look like the handout on the journey and include pictures of the hero and monsters. For hero stories, I have used: Theseus and the Minotaur, Perseus and the Gorgon, Jason and the Golden Fleece, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Bellerophon and Pegasus. All of the hero stories I used came from The Random House Book of Greek Myths.
I will try and find an example poster to upload if you are interested in the students' finished product.
Please rate and give feedback. Also, please check out my other offerings related to Greek Mythology. Thank you!
