Following the Hero's Journey as you read a novel becomes exciting and simple with this DIY Comic Book. Students uncover the patterns and archetypes beneath most English Literature.
I personally suggest starting this with Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Star Wars, and Romeo and Juliet. Each of these follows the Hero's Journey to an extent. Split your class into groups, perhaps by interest or level. Assign each group a separate work. Then have them come together and compare the works.
