PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach the Hero's Journey in Five Days

This 84-page guide contains everything you need to teach the basic journey archetype in just five days (or two, if you want). It features three activities: “The Hero’s Journey: Life’s Great Adventure” (student text) and discussion questions, the legend of "Gawain and the Green Knight" and the film "Star Wars IV: A New Hope" (the original Star Wars film). This unit is ready to go. Preview the material, print student handouts and start teaching.

The guide—all original, classroom-tested materials—includes:

— Detailed, daily lesson plans

— Texts: "The Hero's Journey: Life's Great Adventure" and "Gawain and the Green Knight."

— Film unit: "Star Wars IV" (or other film of your choice) with full analysis

— Graphic and written activities to enhance learning

— A glossary of Hero's Journey concepts and terms

— Resource material to enrich your own knowledge and understanding of the journey

After the students have learned the journey archetype, they will be able to use it to study literature and film and to better negotiate the challenges in their own lives. You can use my suggested two- or five-day plans or fit the material to your own curriculum and schedule.

FREE BONUS: When you purchase this guide, you will also receive my 40-page "Hero's Journey: Three Project Supplement" FREE. See my preview for details.

Supplements: If you want to expand your studies of the Hero's Journey, two supplements are available: "The Legend of the Buddha: A Spiritual Hero's Journey" and "The Call Refused: Evoking the Shadow Journey."

For a full unit details, see my preview.
