Product Description
This is a worksheet to use as the first step to creating a comic strip depicting a 'transformational journey' that your students have taken in their own lives, such as learning a new skill or overcoming an obstacle. The worksheet is ready to go for students with assignment directions and a graphic organizer where students plot the storyline for their comic by deciding on the call through the return "home".

The Hero's Journey Comic Strip Assignment is a fun activity that I've used after reading The Odyssey, after reading the graphic novel, Chinese Born American, and after a film study of Star Wars. It can also be used as a storyboard prewriting activity or a prelude to script writing as most films follow the hero's journey formula.

Comic Strips engage all students and their varied strengths can come forward, while also teaching self awareness, subtext, and the understanding of a very common story writing formula.

For more information on the Hero's Journey, the best resource is A Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.
