A fun and memorable way for students to understand the Hero's Journey concept and realize it in films, stories, etc.
1) Instructions and suggestions for teacher
2) Hero's Journey graphic organizer for student to use when researching films, stories, etc.
***I included both pdf and word versions of the organizer in case you wish to adapt the document to suit the needs of your classroom. :)
3) Fun/visual powerpoint which shows how the film Finding Nemo follows the Hero's Journey cycle.
4) Peer presentation assessment sheet for students to give
feedback to their classmates if giving a media presentation about a movie.
This is a fun concept to teach, as the students are provided the chance to choose a film they enjoy and think more deeply about how it connects to the Hero's Journey. My grade 6-8 classes love this project, as they enjoy the chance to see which films their friends want to research, and the final presentations are always fun for the group to watch together.
