This bundle includes:
1. Epic Hero Journey PPT
2. Matching foldable (completed Word doc template and PDF)
3. Hero Journey worksheet (Word doc)
4. Postcard project (Word doc)
Explore the Epic Hero Journey and apply the concepts to The Alchemist. This pack includes a PowerPoint presentation adapted from the work of Reg Harris (see citation below) and matching foldable. Students can easily follow along through the journey and keep organized notes. The PPT and DOC are editable should you wish to include graphics or examples specific to your teaching style. A PDF is included to show how to copy the foldable double sided. (I usually copy mine on colored paper to make it "fun!")
Once students have grasped the concepts for the Hero's Journey, they can apply them to both the novel as well as their own life using the Hero Journey worksheet. Students will identify the stage/step, give details, and explain how this event helps to develop Santiago's character. On the backside, students will apply the journey stages/steps to their own Personal Legend.
Finally, students can complete a postcard project using the Epic Hero notes in the foldable and the work completed from their own Personal Legend. Students will create postcards relevant to their own journey from the view point of Melchizedek.
Some stage descriptions adapted from “The Hero’s Journey: A Guide to Literature and Life,” by Reg Harris. Used with permission.
