The Monomyth / Hero's Journey Lesson Plan (PPT and PDF Printable Plan)

This 85-page plan and 39-slide PowerPoint is a comprehensive approach for students to learn about the Monomyth / Hero's Journey.

This presentation and plan starts with a historical overview demonstrating the evolution of Sigmund Freud's dream analysis to Carl Jung's collective unconscious / archetypes to Joseph Campbell's Monomyth.

The lesson uses the updated and expanded concepts that Campbell originally developed, which is now more inclusive of many works across the eons of literature.

The presentation uses Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games), and Luke Skywalker (Star Wars) as examples, but the material can be applied to any story that involves an epic hero.

The plan includes:
teacher script and instruction (including details about projects and proof essays),
