This is a Prezi presentation that details The Hero's Journey. The Hero's Journey is based on Joseph Campbell's study of literature. In this presentation, your students will look at how stories are told in very similar patterns. I incorporated numerous video clips to highlight each concept (The Hunger Games, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, The Karate Kid, and Harry Potter). I would like to point out that this presentation does carry a PG rating. There is some violence and minor language in some of the clips. I had my students produce their own Hero's Journey story, and the results were amazing. This teaches students the elements of story writing in a very visual way. The students learn what characters should be included as well as the attributes of those characters. They learn that there is a pattern and what elements are included in each transition. It teaches them the process of introducing characters, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. This file is too large to be uploaded to TpT so the purchased document (a word document) contains the the instructions for going to the actual Prezi. There are 95 slides or transitions in the Prezi. Make sure you have access to YouTube for the videos to load.
