As students study the Hero's Journey, understanding Joseph Campbell is crucial. Campbell's philosophy on the Hero's Journey parallels life in many ways. This activity takes some of Campbell's most insightful quotes and asks the students to do two things: paraphrase the quote and apply the quote to his/her own life. This activity may be done in a small group setting or altered to be an independent assignment. The teacher learns a great deal about his/her students while the students form a greater understanding of Joseph Campbell and the Hero's Journey.
