If you are looking for a thoughtful and engaging way to kickstart your unit on hero's journey, look no further than this Hero's Journey Anticipation Activity!

This product features an engaging introductory lesson plan that will have your students thinking, writing, speaking, and moving on the first day of your hero's journey unit. In this activity, they must choose between 6 different quotes by famous figures about what makes a hero, articulate why the quote aligns with their own perspective, then share their findings with the rest of the class in a fun, non-intimidating way.

Product includes:

  • Comprehensive Lesson Plan
  • "Hero Talk" Sheet for students to fill out
  • 6 Corresponding "Hero Quote" signs to hang up around your room

Though this lesson plan is ideal for the first day of your unit on the hero's journey, it can be used any time throughout your unit and works well as a substitute plan.
