Analyze myth, legend, and literature on a whole new level by using the lens of the Hero's Journey. This 37-page presentation uses high-interest images from The Lion King and Star Wars: A New Hope to give detailed accounts of the stages of the Monomyth, Joseph's Campbell's theory of the Hero's Journey. These 12 stages include: The Ordinary World, the Call to Adventure, Meeting with the Mentor, the Supreme Ordeal, etc.
In addition to helping us understand stories, the Hero's Journey can also help us travel the journey of life. In a unique twist this presentation approaches the Hero's Journey as a philosophy by asking students to apply the Hero's Journey to their own lives. Also included is a printable note-taking sheet for students.
