This lesson is an introduction to what is commonly called the Hero's Cycle, the Hero's Journey, or the Monomyth.

What's included:
- Slides for teaching (with image examples included and links to short Youtube video scenes)
- Guided notes for students (with blanks to keep them engaged and a chart for them to complete during the lesson)

This lesson uses a lot of examples from Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, but my students also had a lot of fun coming up with other examples throughout the lesson.

I used this before beginning The Odyssey with my English 1 students, although it is easily adaptable to any unit involving a hero's journey or mythology.
