This is a 30-page PowerPoint presentation about the Hero's Journey Eight-step transformation, illustrated by images and examples from J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." The relevant images have been a big hit with students, nearly all of whom are familiar with the Harry Potter books or films. This detailed presentation was designed for use with an Advanced Placement course, but could easily be used for literature courses examining the structure and themes of the Hero's Journey; an analytical lecture for in-depth reading of the Harry Potter novels; a creative writing unit about the archetype of the hero; or any number of lit.-based projects.
