PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The "Hero's Journey" is a mono-myth, one that transcends all cultures. Every country, every continent has myths such as this one.

The Star Wars Super Pack will be used in conjunction with the showing of Star Wars - Episode Four, A New Hope. Not only do we learn the characters, but discuss their allegiances, motivations, and the influence of good and evil. Lasty, we showcase the 'Hero's Journey.' The timeless and universal story is integral to students' lives and conceptions of the world around them.

Packet includes:
- vocabulary, character identification, and basic comprehension,
- Original reading, detailing the Force, and backgorund of the hero's myth.
- Character analysis of good and evil, reflective writing and class sharing exercises
- movie quotes, isolated, developed for meaning
- (esp. for EFL learners) script grammar; terms and colloquialisms useful for understanding natural speech, also fun for native speakers!
- mapping and discussion of the Hero's Journey, as recognized by kids, adults, historians, scholars and space travelers throughout our galaxy.

It is a fun way to introduce and explore, not only an iconic movie, but to tie together the threads of stories, new and ancient, throughout our cultures.

I'm assuming about 15-20m. of movie and 20-30m. of class activity per day. The pace depends on you. There is a lot of material here, and plenty of room for guided writing or journaling.

As for Common Core. This certainly covers all Common Core writing from grade 5-6, likely higher levels as well. There is certainly challenging and advanced material here.

My recent rewrite is greatly enhanced over the original.

Some sections will be a challenge to native speakers, yet still useful for intermediate to advnced EFL learners. If you need the WORD files, message me, and I'll email them to you.
