There are many resources online for teaching the heroes journey but I found that the
resources were either too complicated or too simple for my students.
Looking at other resources for guidance, I wrote up these worksheets which allow students to fill in a text box for each stage of the hero's journey.
I use these worksheets throughout a unit so that students become very familiar with the cycle. Students begin by analysing short stories, to see how they fit the pattern (Greek myths are good, as are the stories of Maui from NZ and contemporary superhero stories). Then, the class works together to plan and write a class story, using a blown up image of the worksheet on a whiteboard. At the same time, students begin using the worksheet to plan their own hero story.
Check back later for a wall display you can use with this unit.
