I am putting this up here mainly for myself so I can easily find it! I love showing my students about this. I love talking to them about how the hero cycle can be seen in individual’s lives. It isn’t just found in literature… but that is a great jumping off place for this! I haven’t used this with writing classes but I can see how you could show this and have your students do some creative writing incorporating the hero cycle. You could also use it to analyze different books. Lots of ideas! Take a look and see what you think!
